Differentiation of mixed bacteria samples in the generic level using infrared spectroscopy and multivariate analysis Conference Paper uri icon


  • Abstract: In the present study we examined the potential of Fourier Transformed Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy for accurate identification and differentiation of mixed bacteria samples in a time span of a few minutes. The bacterial samples used in this study are Escherichia (E.) coli, Bacillus (B.) megaterium and a mixture of E. coli and B. megaterium. The best results of differentiation were obtained within the 675-1800 cm-1 range. In this range the dimension of the feature vector is 293. Principal components analysis (PCA) followed by linear …
