CTC

5-Cyano-2,3-ditolyl-2H-tetrazolium chloride.


CTC can be used in various ways to detect bacteria, depending on the objective. Detection methods include the agar plate cultivation method, which involves counting colonies that arise from bacteria cultivation; staining bacteria using the fluorescent stain method; testing for bacteria that has potential for growth using the DVC method; and detecting particular bacteria using the FISH method-DNA amplification method. CTC is reduced to CTC formazan (CTF) by electron transfer through respiratory activity and builds up as fluorescent sedimentation inside a cell that has become insoluble in water.
