Combined action of low temperature and magnetic field of different intensities on growth of some bacterial species in vitro

Abstract

Growth dynamic of bacterial population after influence of magnetic field and cryoaction has been studied. In vitro experiments were performed on Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus, and Lactobacillus delbrueckii cultures. The most significant result was obtained in experiments with Bacillus cereus. When applied separately, cryoaction and alternating magnetic field were not able to kill this microorganism, whereas combined action of these factors led to the complete devitalization of bacterial culture.
