Volume of a Bacterial Cell.

     Volume of a bacterial cell was taken as 2 10-15 liters (18) or 2.5 μl/mg dry weight (19) assuming that the weight of one cell is 9.5 10-13 g and the dry weight of one cell is 2.8 10-13 g (20). Alternatively, the volume of a tubercle bacillus was calculated assuming that one cell represents a cylinder with width ranging from 0.3 to 0.6 μm and length from 1 to 4 μm and that lipid represents ≈60% of wet weight (21).
