Abstract : The purpose of this investigation is to test the simplest, more rapid and economical micromethods, allowing rather complete study of the biochemical properties of bacteria to be performed in short order. The work was performed using standard cultures of the following microorganisms: Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Bacillus cereus, Bacillus mesentericus, Micrococcus pyogenes var. aureus and Bacillus megatherium. Test methods for the following Saccharolytic properties; Test for urease; Test for the capability to form indole; Test for reduction of nitrates; and Test for reduction of nitrites.
