Abstract

Summary: The induction properties to ultraviolet light of some of the staphylococcal phages of the National Collection of Type Cultures (Colindale, London) and their propagating strains were studied. There was considerable variation in response, but in all cases phage titres rose. Bacterial opacity was an unsatisfactory indicator of induction and on some occasions no lysis was detected.
