Comparison of the Efficacy of Various Yeast Viability Stains
Yeast are single cell microorganisms that reproduce by budding. A well known property of yeast is that they are responsible for the conversion of fermentable sugars into alcohol and other by products. Consistent yeast performance during the fermentation process requires both accurate cell counts plus assessment of cellular viability. The principal markets utilizing yeast fermentation are the brewery and ethanol production industries.
