To investigate the influence of microwave irradiation on the growth rate of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Exposure duration: up to 12 hr
|Exposure duration||up to 12 hr|
|power||11 mW||unspecified||measured||-||13 mW, 14 mW, 15 mW, 17 mW, 18 mW, 19 mW, 22 mW, 23 mW, 26 mW and 27 mW|
A frequency-dependent effect of microwave irradiation on the growth rate of S. cerevisiae could be demonstrated. The cell density as a direct indicator for cell growth was either decreased or increased relative to the unirradiated control.
