Abstract

The light intensity emitted by luminescent bacteria is influenced by both the osmolarity and the ion composition of the test medium. The addition of potassium and calcium ions to a sodium chloride solution causes a considerable increase in the light intensity of bacteria. If these elements occur in the proper concentrations in the test material, the… (More)
