Application Note: Yeast Concentration and Viability using Image-Based Fluorescence Analysis
7 December 2018

Yeasts are an economically important organism used for ethanol production in the beverage and alternative fuels industries as well as a leavening agent in the baking industry. In addition, pathogenic strains of yeasts are involved in both plant and animal diseases. Concentration and viability determinations are routinely performed for quality control purposes in yeast production, fermentation processes, and fungicides research to monitor proliferation of pathogenic yeasts.
