does anybody know the concentration of nickel in Brucella broth or other
(comparable) microbiological media? Or a protocol how to measure it, without
specific equipment; a colorimetric assay, preferably. My searches in the
Medline only resulted in a xylenol orange assay, but that's not specific for

While I am at it, does anybody know a nickel specific chelator, so I can
measure the effect of varying the nickel conc on my pet microbe?

Thanks in advance,
