Table 1 Maximum specific growth rates μ max in pure and mixed culture

From: Species-specific viability analysis of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Burkholderia cepacia and Staphylococcus aureus in mixed culture by flow cytometry

Species Pure culture Mixed culture
μmax(h−1) Δt (h) μmax(h−1) Δt (h)
P. a. 0.88 ± 0.11 0 - 4 1.22 ± 0.05 0 - 6
B. c. 0.77 ± 0.02 0 - 6 0.86 ± 0.09 0 - 6
S. a. 1.08 ± 0.37 0 - 4 1.29 ± 0.31 0 - 4
  1. Parameters were determined for P. aeruginosa, B. cepacia and S. aureus by linear regression from loge cell concentrations during exponential growth phase; mean values ± standard deviation from three biological replicates.
