Abstract

Anilogel‐E, a cross‐linked starch, can be used with distinct advantages where native starch or soluble starch are conventionally used, e.g. in scoring for amylolytic organisms, as an ingredient of fermentation media, and in enhancing protoplast regeneration. It is particularly useful for the direct visualization of amylase producing micro‐organisms on solid media, making prior replication of colonies unnecessary.
