3 Terms and definitions
The following terms and definitions apply to this standard.
3.1
Microbial inoculants in agriculture
The live bacteria preparations, which are processed from target
If the dilution method [Most Probable Number (MPN) 5 pipe method] is used, it is performed in accordance with the provisions of Appendix C.
6.3.2.1 Serial dilution
Weigh 10 g of the sample (accurate to 0.01 g). Add 100 mL of sterile water (or physiological saline), which contains glass beads [for liquid inoculants, take 10.0 mL AND add 90 mL of sterile water (or physiological saline)]. Let it stand for 20 min. Fully shake it on a rotary shaker at 200 r/min for 30 min, to form a mother liquor bacterial suspension (basic liquid).
Use a sterile pipette to pipette 5.0 mL of the above-mentioned mother liquor bacterial suspension. Add 45 mL of sterile water (or physiological saline). Perform serial dilutions according to 1???10, to respectively obtain the bacterial suspension of the dilution 1???1 x 101, 1???1 x 102, 1???1 x 103, 1???1 x 104... ?€? (the sterile pipette shall be replaced for each dilution).
6.3.2.2 Sample addition and cultivation
Take 3 consecutive suitable dilutions for each sample. Use a sterile pipette to respectively pipette 0.1 mL of the bacterial suspension of different dilutions. Add them to the pre-prepared solid medium plate. Respectively use a sterile glass spatula, to uniformly coat the bacterial suspension, of different dilutions, on the surface of the agar.
Each dilution is repeated 3 times. At the same time, use the sterile water (or physiological saline) as a blank control. Culture it under appropriate conditions. 6.3.2.3 Colony identification
According to the technical data of the tested bacteria, for each dilution, take different types of representative colonies, to confirm the effective bacteria, through technical means such as smears, staining, microscopy. When the count of colonies appears in the blank control cultural dish, the test result is invalid. The test shall be repeated.
6.3.2.4 Colony count
Take the dilution plate, which appears 20 ~ 300 colonies, as the counting criteria (10 ~ 150 colonies for filamentous fungi). Respectively count the number of effective viable bacteria and the number of miscellaneous bacteria. When there is only one dilution AND the average number of colonies is between 20 ~ 300, the average number of colonies is used for calculation. If there are two dilutions, when the average count of colonies is between 20 ~ 300, it shall be determined, according to the ratio of the total number of the two colonies. If the ratio is less than or equal to 2, it shall calculate the average number of the two. If it is greater than 2, the average number of colonies, which have smaller dilution, shall be instrument reading is stable.
6.3.7.3 Particle samples

Dilution method (MPN 5-tube method)
C.1 Dilution
Weigh 10.0 g of the sample. Add 100 mL of sterile water, which contains glass beads (for liquid inoculants, take 10.0 mL AND add it into 90 mL of sterile water). Let it stand for 20 min. Shake it on a rotary shaker at 200 r/min for 30 min, to obtain a bacterial suspension, which has a dilution of 1 x 101.
Use a sterile pipette, to pipette 5.0 mL of the above bacterial suspension into a triangular flask, which contains 45 mL of sterile water. Shake well, to obtain the bacterial suspension of 1 x 102 dilution. According to this method, prepare the bacterial suspension of dilution 1 x 103, 1 x 104, 1 x 105... ?€? (the sterile pipette shall be replaced for each dilution).
C.2 Sample addition
Choose the appropriate 5 serial dilutions. Use a sterile pipette, to pipette 1.0 mL of the bacterial suspension of different dilutions. Add them to the prepared threaded-opening test tube, which contains 9.0 mL of sterile medium. For each dilution, repeatedly inoculate 5 test tubes (replace the sterile pipette between different dilutions). Use the sterile culture medium as a control, at the same time. C.3 Culture
Tighten the plastic cap AND shake well immediately after inoculation. Place the inoculated test tube, for culture, under suitable conditions.
C.4 Calculation
According to whether there is growth of the microorganism to be tested OR the positive or negative physiological response in each dilution series test tube, obtain the quantitative index. Find the approximate value, from the
corresponding MPN statistical table (see Table C.1); then, it can calculate the number of effective viable bacteria in the test sample, which is expressed in one million pieces/mL or one million pieces/g.
Calculation method:
The number of effective viable bacteria in a 1 mL (or 1 g) of sample = the approximate value of the number of bacteria x the dilution factor of the first digit of the quantity index

Determination of enzyme activity
D.1 Determination of cellulase activity
D.1.1 Principle
Using Carboxyl methyl cellulose (CMC) as a substrate, to generate reducing sugars, after cellulase hydrolysis. The 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid (DNS) is an oxidizing agent, that can react with reducing sugars, to reduce the nitro group into an amino group; then the solution becomes orange; the depth of the orange is proportional to the concentration of reducing sugar. Therefore, the
colorimetric method can be used, to obtain the content of reducing sugars; then calculate the size of cellulase activity, from the number of reducing sugars. D.1.2 Reagents and solutions
a) Sodium phosphate buffer (0.2 mol/L, pH 6.0): Mix 12.3 mL of 0.2 mol/L disodium hydrogen phosphate (Na2HPO4) and 87.7 mL of 0.2 mol/L
sodium dihydrogen phosphate (NaH2PO4).
b) CMC buffer: Accurately weigh 0.625 g of carboxyl methyl cellulose.
Dissolve it in 100.0 mL of sodium phosphate buffer. Heat and stir to
dissolve it.
c) DNS developer: Weigh 10.0 g of 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid. Dissolve it in distilled water. Add 20.0 g of sodium hydroxide, 200.0 g of potassium
sodium tartrate, 500.0 mL of water. Heat to dissolve it. Add 2.0 g of re- steamed phenol, 0.5 g of anhydrous sodium sulfite. Cool down after all
dissolving. Make its volume reach to 1000.0 mL.
d) 1000 ??g/mL standard glucose solution: Accurately weigh 25.0 g of glucose. Use distilled water to make its volume reach to 25.0 mL.
D.1.3 Instrument and equipment
