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
