- An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for sensitive, specific and quantitative estimation of fungal biomass during solid-state fermentation is described. Using this method, differential growth rates and colonization of the substrate can be studied. The assay has potential application for the efficient monitoring of solid-state fermentation involving specific fungus, for which available methods are not adequate.
