Title
Analysis of bacterial polyhydroxybutyrate production by multimodal nanoimaging
Abstract

In this paper, we will employ two microscopy techniques, transmission electron microscopy and infrared nanospectromicroscopy, to study the production of polyhydroxybutyrate in Rhodobacter capsulatus and to evaluate the influence of glucose and acetone on the production yield. The results overlap which leads us to a consistent conclusion, highlighting that each technique brings specific and complementary information. By using electron microscopy and infrared nanospectromicroscopy we have proved that both glucose and acetone had a positive effect on the biopolymer production, although the first study done by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy only identified the effect of acetone. In conclusion, we have now established a method to be able to perform fast diagnostic for PHB production.
