Abstract : Research reported here is concerned with an investigation of two new fluorescent techniques for the rapid identification of microorganisms: (1) membrane potential dyes for the discrimination of viable microorganisms in particulate samples, and (2) a proprietary immunofluorescent technique which will allow the individual presence of several different antigens to be detected in a single measurement.
