Laser Light Scattering on Bacterial Colonies as a Possible Tool for Rapid Identification
A rapid and simple method was developed for bacterial colony recognition by using the polarised laser light diffraction pattern of the colony structure. The diffraction patterns were photographed and classified according to their degree of symmetry. A correlation between the symmetry groups of diffraction patterns and the taxono-mical identity of some eubacterial colonies was studied.
