  A screening system for carbon sources enhancing beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase formation in Hypocrea atroviridis (Trichoderma atroviride)
The authors have used the Biolog Phenotype MicroArray as a means to screen for carbon sources that enhance beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase (NAGase) production. This screening method is generally adaptable for any readily detectable enzyme activity.

  {beta}D-Allose Inhibits Fruiting Body Formation and Sporulation in Myxococcus xanthus
Phenotype MicroArrays were used to screen for culture conditions affecting fruiting body formation. The authors screened 384 test conditions using reporter genes of fruiting body development in Myxococcus xanthus as the output. This screening method is generally adaptable for any readily detectable reporter gene.`

Phenotype MicroArray Technology
Biolog's Phentoype MicroArray technology enables researchers to evaluate nearly 2000 phenotypes of a microbial cell in a single experiment. This integrated system of cellular assays, instrumentation and bioinformatics software provides cellular knowledge that complements molecular information, helping you interpret and find the relevant aspects in massive amounts of gene expression or proteomics data. Through comprehensive and precise quantitation of phenotypes, researchers are able to obtain an unbiased perspective of the effect on cells of genetic differences, environmental change, exposure to chemicals or drugs, and more.
