- A rapid, community-level assessment tool for studying microbial community dynamics
- Biolog EcoPlates provide a sensitive and reliable index of environmental change. This approach, called community-level physiological profiling (CLPP), is effective at distinguishing spatial and temporal changes in the metabolism of microbial communities.
- 31 carbon assays in triplicate
- EcoPlates contain 3 repeated sets of 31 carbon sources and employ a tetrazolium redox dye as an indicator of microbial metabolism. As microbes utilize the carbon sources they respire and the tetrazolium reporter dye is reduced to form a visible purple color. Communities of microorganisms will exhibit a characteristic reaction pattern, a metabolic fingerprint, that reflects the metabolic properties of the community."
