A method has been developed for turbidimetric measurement of bacterial growth in standard inexpensive test tubes with closures in-place. Liquid cultures and agar plug diffusion cultures can be assayed using an unmodified spectrophotometer. Growth curves of replicate cultures grown in test tubes, are reproducible with respect to similarity of curve shape, onset of logarithmic growth phase, and maximum growth.
