Measurement of respiration rates of Methylobacterium extorquens AM1 cultures by use of a phosphorescence-based sensor. Journal Article uri icon



  • Respiration rates of bacterial cultures can be a powerful tool in gauging the effects of genetic manipulation and environmental changes affecting overall metabolism. We present an optical method for measuring respiration rates using a robust phosphorescence lifetime-based sensor and off-the-shelf technology. This method was tested with the facultative methylotroph Methylobacterium extorquens AM1 to demonstrate subtle mutant phenotypes.
