Abstract

Fluorescent pseudomonads may be identified through examination of the fluorescence 'profiles' of diffusible pigments released into the growth medium. The profiles are obtained in the form of an emission-excitation matrix, the elements of which correspond to fluorescence intensity as a function of multiple exciting and emitting wavelengths. Use of a rapid scanning fluorometer to acquire these data provides a relatively fast method for identification of the microorganisms after incubation. This procedure can potentially be expanded for the identification of other microorganisms.
