I am looking for a rapid method to screen glycerol-producing microorganisms.
There are about 12000 candidates I have to screen.
There is a paper in Journal of Microbiological Methods (1983) 339-342:
"A rapid screening method to detect ethanol production by microorganisms" by
Cornelius Johannes Jacobs, Bernard Alexander Prior, and Michael Josias de Kock.
They used enzyme and certain dyes and poured them directly on the petri plate,
the ethanol-producing organisms will have a certain distinctive color.
I would really appreciate it if you could inform me where I can find a
similar methods for glycerol, or any other method you may know.
P.S. you can e-mail me at kosanc at caelab1.cae.wisc.edu
