What is your biology telling you?



Hyphomicrobium can be observed at phase contrast at 1000x. It grows due to C1 compounds such as methanol and is capable of denitrification. It is the only organism that denitrifies that can be identified specifically at phase contrast. Just because hyphomicrobium is present does not mean that denitrification is occurring. It is commonlyfound when methanol is used as a carbon source for denitrification, or if methanol is used in production (industrial wastewater facilities).
