Analysis of the cellular fatty acid composition
Detection of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) by gas chromatography and analysis with specific software (e.g. Sherlock™ Microbial Identification System). Used to differentiate and to characterise isolates
Analysis of structural components of the cells (fatty-acids, cell wall sugars, polar lipids, mycolic acids, antigens)
