Cell density at osmotic pressure of 0 bar

Value 1.0952 g/ml Range: ±0.011 g/ml
Organism Budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Reference M. Reuß, D. Josic, M. Popovic, and W.K. Bronn, Viscosity of Yeast Suspensions, European J. Appl. Microbiol. Biotechnol. 8, 167-175 (1979)
Method The mean density of the yeast cells was computed from Rho biomass=Rho suspension (1- (volume fraction of cells))/volume fraction of cells, eq. 7
Comments suspended in distilled water. The mean density of yeast cells will also depend on the osmotic pressure. This value for (Posm = 0 bar, 1 bar = 100 kPa (kilopascals)) Extrapolated from figure 4. See BNID 106439
