FISH image of "Ca. Villogracilis" (red) in full-scale activated sludge. Other cells appear blue. Bar= 20 microns. - Source:1Aerobic heterotroph
Thin filaments of 0.3 – 0.4 µm wide and 12 – 50 µm long. Often observed in bundles and almost exclusively located within the flocs1.
CFX763A and CFU763B target subgroup A and B, respectively. They collectively cover >60% of the genus sequences in the MiDAS database 1. The helper probes CFX763ABH1A and CFX763ABH1B are recommended to give optimal fluorescence signal 1.
