Any other information on results incl. tables

Doses up to and including 500 ug per plate did not cause any bacteriotoxic effects: Total bacteria counts remained unchanged and no inhibition of growth was observed. At higher doses, the substance had only a weak, strain-specific bacteriotoxic effect. Due to the weakness of this effect this range could nevertheless be used for assessment purposes. Substance precipitation occurred at the dose 5000 ug per plate.
