THE REHYDRATION OF AEROSOLIZED BACTERIA: I: COMPOUNDS WHICH ENHANCE THE SURVIVAL OF REHYDRATED PASTEURELLA TULARENSIS, by V. J. Cabelli. Feb 62, 56p. incl. illus. tables, 9 refs. (Technical rept. no. DPGR 314) ( A Proj. 4D98-05-029-02) Unclassified report No automatic release to foreign nationals. DESCRIPTORS: *Bacterial aerosols, *Pasteurella, Aerobiology, Viability, Cysteine, Phosphates, Cells (Biology), Impingers, Diffusion, Carbohydrates. Various chemical compounds were studied for their influence on the survival of aerosolized Pasteurella tularensis following rehydration in the liquid impinger. A hypothesi is given to explain the death of the organisms on rehydration and the requirement for certain compounds to enhance survival. A chemically defined collecting and holding fluid for this organism is described. (Author)
