In this study an on-line electrochemical method was developed to examine the one-step growth cycle (OSGC) of the bacteriophage Bam35. The on-line conditions for monitoring the OSGC and the effect of aeration on the duration of the OSGC were defined. The data indicate that binding of phenyldicarbaundecaborane anions to Bacillus thuringiensis cells infected with Bam35 can be used as a sensitive indicator of cell lysis.
