INFLUENCE OF MINERAL SYLVINITE ON BACTERIAL CULTURE GROWTH INDICES IN SALT-THERAPY UNITS

Abstract

Aim. To study the influence of natural mineral sylvinite on the growth indices of bacterial cultures in laboratory conditions. Materials and methods. A series of experiments on the basis of original model of sylvinite unit was carried out. The object of this study - microbial culture S.aureus . Its inoculation on the blood agar followed by daily incubation was performed. The size of colonies and diameter of hemolysis zones were measured using binocular magnifier with ocular-micrometer (enlargement ×8). Results. A reliable fall in the size of S.aureus colonies and diameter of hemolysis zones around them was experimentally proved. The obtained results demonstrate a marked inhibiting effect of natural mineral sylvinite on S.aureu growth indices and hemolytic activity . Conclusions. The performed microbiological studies detected a significant antibacterial effect of mineral sylvinite.
