Use of a Coulter Counter to detect discrete changes in cell numbers and volume during growth of Escherichia coli



Use of a Coulter Counter to detect discrete changes in cell numbers and volume during growth of Escherichia coli



Journal of Applied Bacteriology 39(2): 157-165



E. coli could be detected at a concentration of 105 cells/ml. Growth curves of the organism grown in filtered tryptone soya broth were made by taking viable and Coulter counts. Both curves were similar in shape and varied little during 10 h growth. Cell volume and volume distribution were seen to vary considerably, however, volume reaching a stable minimum value of 0.61 mu m3 after 8 h. The Coulter Counter was considered to be potentially useful for detecting significant bacteriuria.
