Description:This image depicts a 25-well plate, which had been used to conduct a series of unknown biochemical tests, the results of which were displayed as changes in coloration of the solution within each well.
The science of biochemistry is often implemented in the laboratory setting. Investigations involving the identification of unknown organisms use a multitude of biochemical reactions involved in the maintenance of microbiologic organisms, and the products of these reactions can readily be used to identify the type of microorganism that gave rise to these products. By using algorithmic methods, and the process of elimination, whittling away at a sample’s biochemical products, can lead scientists down a path that will ultimately reveal the identity of an unknown organism.
