Summary

This communication describes a rapid, simple and reliable method for the determination of the cellular RNA content. In the study of microbial growth and product formation the cellular RNA content is a good measure of the activity of the biomass. Results from applying the method to monitor transient experiments in a chemostat with Lactococcus cremoris are presented.
