The measurement of cell growth in coal slurries

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Microbial growth in coal slurries can be detected if surfactant is present in the samples by analysing the protein concentration after disintegration of the cells. Without surfactant present in the samples, the proteins are readily adsorbed on the coal surfaces. A suitable surfactant is sodium dodecyl sulphate at 0.5 to 1% of the sample volume
