Method Coulter counter. Cells of several different sizes were obtained from either stationary- or exponential-phase cultures of E. coli B/rA grown overnight at 37°C in a shaker water bath in nutrient broth or M9-glucose (10 g/liter) medium. Culture volumes were 160 ml for stationary-phase cultures and 50 ml for exponentially growing cultures.
Comments value depends on medium and growth rate, see ref.
