Except at very low levels, uncorrected photometric determination of bacterial cell densities showed a decreasing proportionally to actual cell density or dry weight. A standard curve was prepared to convert photometric readings to truly proportional optical density values. With one dry weight determination, optical density values may be converted to absolute dry weight values.
