I am growing up bacteria in a flask and was wondering how do I track the changes of sugar concentration from the growth medium in the flask.

Thanks for the help

Which sugar, Glucose? –  Chris Jul 25 at 19:03
Yes Glucose is the sugar I'm looking for –  Immunological Jul 27 at 20:09
What chemistry can you do in the lab? There are a few possibilities to measure the glucose concentration. The easiest will probably be to get some test sticks. –  Chris Jul 27 at 20:26
I could run assays... –  Immunological Jul 29 at 0:36
