>From what I understand this method still needs isolation/purification
of the organism first. There are also other "rapid identification
methods" that you might want to look at. Have a look at Special issue
free full-text  Volume 42/1, September 2000, Microbial Analysis at the
Single Cell Level http://www.elsevier.com/homepage/sah/mimet/speciss/toc42_1.htm
for some ideas on cytometry, Raman spectroscopy and FT-IR
spectroscopy.
