Abstract : No significant differences were observed between the growth of S. aureaus in the geomagnetic field and in a magnetic field with a field strength reduced by a factor of 1000. Pigmentation, mannitol fermentation, gelatinase activity, coagulase production, and catalase activity were also not influenced by the low magnetic field. (Author)
