Abstract : The specific electrical conductivity of sterilized suspensions of Pasteurella cularensis and Brucella suis was measured as a function of temperature and compared with a standard sodium chloride solutio5 for naval application. A D.S. Navy Flooding Indicator was also tested with these suspensions and compared with the standard solution. Results indicated favorable applicaaion of the Flooding Indicator to detect gross leakage of suspensions of these microorganisms under prescribed standards.
