Biochemical tests identify the main biologically important chemical compounds. For each test take a small amount of the substance to test, shake it in water in a test tube. The substance may need grinding with a pestle and mortar, to break up the cells and release the cell contents. Many of these compounds are insoluble, but the tests work just as well in a fine suspension. The type of test that carried out at Nano Biotech Research are:
  • Carbohydrate utilization tests (sugar test). - lactose , sucrose , mannitol , maltose , xylose and dextrose.
  • Mvic test includes indole test , methyl red test , voges proskuer test , citrate utilization test.
  • Nitrate reduction test.
  • Urease test
  • Triple sugar iron test.
  • Lead acetate test.
  • Mannitol motility test
  • O-F (oxidation - fermentation) test
  • Aminoacid degradation test
  • H2S production in SIM
