Abstract : Dried Serratia marcescens were exposed to various partial pressures of oxygen and nitrogen. The colony-forming ability of the organisms was rapidly destroyed during exposure to oxygen but unimpaired by exposure to purified nitrogen. The degree of inactivation depended upon temperature, time, and the partial pressure of oxygen regardless of whether pure oxygen or dry air was used.
