Engineering and Technology Journal, 2008, Volume 26, Issue 4, Pages 458-461

Magnetic fields with two densities (1200 , 3200)gauss experminted on two
kinds of bacteria Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus in Nutrient broth
media . The field subjected for (1,2,3) weeks, and the growth monitored using
optical density (OD) method.
The results shows greatest effects of 3200 gauss than 1200 gauss on bacteria
growth comparing with control sample after third week. The OD resulte of bacteria
Escherichia coli (0.3) with 3200 gauss and (6) with 1200 gauss comparing with
control sample(175.4) and bacteria Staphylococcus aureus (1) with 3200 gauss,
and (10) with 1200 gauss comparing with control sample (174.4).
