Product Code TM 599

  • Description

    Asparagine Nitrate Medium is formulated as per Subba Rao. Nitrogen transformation in soil results in the loss of molecular nitrogen. The conversion of nitrate and nitrite into molecular nitrogen or nitrous oxide through microbial processes is known as denitrification. Denitrification of bound nitrogen to gaseous nitrogen is mediated by numerous species of bacteria, which normally use oxygen as hydrogen acceptor (aerobic). These bacteria also possess the ability to use nitrate and nitrite in the place of oxygen as the hydrogen acceptor (anaerobically).
