Four of these, the macronutrients carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen, must be available in gram quantities per litre of growth medium. 2). Other minor elements, including calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium, are required at levels of a few milligrams per litre; the trace elements, primarily cobalt, copper, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, selenium and zinc, are needed in only microgram quantities. Macronutrients Autotrophic fermentations that utilize CO2 are rarely operated on an industrial scale: almost all involve heterotrophic growth.

The two methods routinely used are spread plating and pour plating. Prior to plating, it is usually necessary to prepare a serial dilution series in sterile diluent for concentrated cell suspensions. Alternatively, for samples with low cell numbers, as in water analysis, a concentration step is required. g. a bent glass rod. The plates are then inverted and incubated at the optimum growth temperature. All resultant colonies should be well separated and easily counted. This also enables the isolation of pure cultures where required.
