Characterisation of anaerobic mixed cultures by partition in an aqueous two-phase system

Murto, Marika LU ; Dissing, U and Mattiasson, Bo LU (2002) In Biotechnology Letters 24(5). p.335-341
Abstract
A method to characterise a dynamic microbial consortium is described. By exploiting differences in surface properties between different cells and between cells of different physiological status, it was possible to develop a partition pattern for a mixed culture under different conditions. The separation method used was partition in aqueous two-phase systems and when using a counter current extraction process one could clearly differentiate the partition profile between resting, active and overloaded biomethanation cultures.
