Abstract

Methanogenic fluorescent colonies can be clearly identified on roll tubes by using an epifluorescence microscope equipped with a × 2 objective. Methanogenic and nonmethanogenic colonies could be counted in roll tubes prepared from methanogenic enrichment cultures. Late-developing colonies appearing after 25 days of incubation were mainly methanogenic.
