Microbiological Research of the Effects of Electromagnetic Fields of the Bacteria Escherichia coli, Enterococci, Coliforms and Clostridium perfringens

Nedyalka Valcheva, Ignat Ignatov


The aim of the study was to analyze the microbiological effects of electromagnetic fields with method of Drossinakis with reliable microbiological methods. A comparative analysis of the number of bacteria of a given species before and after electromagnetic influence was performed. For the research was applied water with the following bacteria –Escherichia coli, Enterococci, Coliforms and Clostridium perfringens.

The method of Drossinakis is including the electromagnetic waves in the electromagnetic spectrum, from 1 Hz to 3.1015 Hz. For the inhibiting effects on bacteria the method of Drossinakis is including low frequencies from 20 till 70 Hz.

The study shows the effects with low frequencies electromagnetic waves for decreasing of the number of bacteria. The controlled microbiological parameters are defined by the membrane method and by using of differential diagnostic nutrient media at 24 hours.
