|French term or phrase: fumigation-extraction|
|it's a procedure to measure the microbial biomass of a soil, ISO 14240-2.|
Would be nice to know how it works, too.
Another one: Activité FDA-Hydrolase: How does that one work?
Fumigation-extraction = Ausräucherung-Extraktion
For more info on how this works, please contact e.g. Prof. Dr. Rainer Georg Jörgensen at the Institute of Soil Sciences of the Georg-August-University of Göttingen (email@example.com) or visit the following website (in both German & English): http://vendigo.uni-soilsci.gwdg.de/index.html
FDA-Hydrolase = (German:) FDA-Hydrolase (Enzym) (Food Drug Administration - Hydrolase): activity of detoxifying a.o. a widely-used cancer agent through a naturally produced enzyme by hydrolysing the bonds between two or more carbohydrates...

|Thank you for your help. The link to the university website was very helpful, it showed the term Fumigation-Extraktion is used in German, too. In the meantime I got also some additional information from the customer: the procedure consists of exposing a soil sample to chloroform vapor and then extracting it with K2SO4-solution, so I'm not sure if Ausräucherung is really the word to use - it implies smoke, not vapour.|
The FDA-Hydrolase activites have nothing to do with the food-and drug administration, the FDA stands for fluoresceine diacetate (a dyestuff). It measures the activity of the soil bacteria, but I don't know how it works exactly (which would be helpful to know for translating some of the text).
