Table 1 Statistics: residual concentrations of starch (measured by optical density after reaction with iodine) in the R. rubrum culture after 2 h exposition in the geomagnetic field (Blank) and in the impulse magnet field (IMF)

From: Application of static and impulse magnetic fields to bacteria Rhodospirillum rubrum VKM B-1621
