Abstract

A modified cupric acetate method for the screening and quantitation of xylanolytic activities was comparable with the more widely used congo red method with respect to sensitivity and ease of use and was shown to have points of merit over the latter. The use of a non-linear correction, in comparison to the conventional linear one, for the effect of dilution on the quantitative plate assay was evaluated.
