The microplates were incubated at 37 [degrees]C for 24 h; then, 30 [micro]L 0.02% resazurin (Sigma-Aldrich) aqueous solution was added to every well (Sarker et al., 2007).

The metabolic conversion of resazurin to resorufin was used as a measure for viability, which was estimated 1 h and 24 h post-treatment with AAPH and UV radiation, respectively.
The viability of cells in individual wells was assessed by adding 20 [micro]L of resazurin toxicology reagent (Sigma-Aldrich) per well and measuring fluorescence intensity (exc.
For enrichment culture and isolation, the medium was prepared based on the modification by Sowers and Schreier [17] and contained the following compounds (per liter distilled water): K[H.sub.2]P[O.sub.4], 0.51 g; [K.sub.2]HP[O.sub.4], 0.24 g; MgS[O.sub.4] x 7[H.sub.2]O, 0.204 g; [(N[H.sub.4]).sub.2]S[O.sub.4], 0.255 g; NaCl, 1.02 g; Ca[Cl.sub.2] x 2[H.sub.2]O, 0.134 g; vitamin solution, 10.0 mL; yeast extract, 1.0 g; sodium acetate, 50 mM; methanol, 50 mM; sodium formate, 50 mM; rumen fluid, 300 mL; NaHC[O.sub.3], 5.0 g; resazurin, 0.001 g; 0.2 M cysteine hydrochloride, 15 mL; and 0.2 M [Na.sub.2]S x 9[H.sub.2]O, 4.0 mL.
Several approaches are possible to determine the cytotoxicity of material like LDH release, MTT formation, XTT formation, neutral red uptake, kenacid blue binding, acid phosphatase activity, sulforhodamine B binding and resazurin binding (20).
The medium used for isolation and cultivation of strains grown on Thioglycolate Agar (TGA) medium and was prepared as follows; 15 g/L pancreatic digest of casein, 5.5 g/L dextrose, 5 g/L yeast extract, 2.5 g/L sodium chloride, 0.5 g/L sodium thioglycolate, 0.5 g/L L-cystine, 1 mg/L resazurin, 75 g/L agar with final pH 7 (29).
