Selected biochemical analysis techniques were investigated for potential use in detecting and assessing pollution of subsurface environments. Procedures for determining protein, nucleic acids, organic phosphate, lipopolysaccharides, and various coenzymes and enzyme systems were evaluated. These procedures were modified and adapted for application to environmental samples, and sensitivities were determined in terms of numbers of Escherichia coli cells which could be detected.
