Details for Oxygen and Microbial Biomass Content

Name:Oxygen and Microbial Biomass Content

The total viable microbial biomass can be determined by the amount of phospholipid ester-linked fatty acids (PLFA) detected in a sample. Viable microbes have an intact membrane that contains phospholipids. Cellular enzymes hydrolyze and release the phosphate group from the fatty acids within minutes to hours of cell death.
