Abstract

Study was conducted for Isolation and screening of cellulose producing Glucanoacetobacter xylinum strains from different possible sources. Among the different sources tested fruits were found to be the potential sources of G. Xylinum. Among the different fruits tested pineapple was known be the best sources, indicating that any sources which is rich in sugars would be better source for the isolation. Based on the thickness and weight of bacterial cellulose produced efficient strains were selected and characterized morphologically and biochemically and were found to belongs to G. xylinum.
