Method P.181 right column 3rd paragraph: "Cell density was determined by direct counting, using a light microscope (magnification 400×) with a 0.1mm deep counting chamber (Neubauer). Dry weight was determined on pre-washed glass fibre filter with aliquots of the culture, washed with ammonium formiate 1% (w/v) and dried at 80°C for 24 h. These determinations gave an average value of 153±3 pg/cell."
