The form of the survivors' curve when Staph. aureus is subjected to the action of bactericides is not constant. It is a function of the organism and the specific bactericide and attempts to conform such curves to one generalized formula, monomolecular or polymolecular, must prove futile. Under identical conditions the survivors' curves are alike in form.
