Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization

The procedures for microscopic detection and identification of filamentous and other bacteria are based on some characteristic morphological features and on the reaction of specific staining of cellmembrane or cellinclusions. However, morphology and staining reactions can vary significantly depending on cultivation conditions and wastewater composition. These problems cause there to be sometimes some difficulties and uncertainties in the result of the ...
