Abstract

A wide diversity of fluorescent probes is currently available to assess the physiological state of microorganisms. The recent development of techniques such as solid-phase cytometry, the increasing sensitivity of fluorescence tools and multiparametric approaches combining taxonomic and physiological probes have improved the effectiveness of direct methods in environmental and industrial microbiology.
