Abstract : The restricted environment of a space vehicle and the stresses of space flight have made necessary the establishment of microbiologic tolerance limits. A graphic outline is presented for the microbiologic sampling of human subjects to determine the composition of their indigenous microflora. The types of microorganisms to be expected and the culture media to be used are given for various body areas. (Author)
