The present study deals with the decolorisation,biodegration and detoxification of Direct Black-38,a benzidine based azodyes, by a mixed microbial culture isolated from an aerobic bioreactor treating textile wastewater. The studies revealed a biotransforma-tion of Direct Black-38 into benzidine and 4-aminobiphenyl followed by complete decolorisation and biodegradation of these toxic intermediates. From cytotoxicity studies, it was concluded that detoxification of the dye took place after degradation of the toxic intermediates by the culture.
