A complex medium, that permitted growth of Legionella pneumophila under chemostat conditions, was developed. The elimination of iron (III) was necessary to prevent catalytic oxidation of cysteine present in the medium. The inactivation of Legionella pneumophila populations grown under various nutrient conditions was studied. The results indicated that populations grown under low nutrient conditions were more resistant to inactivation than population grown under high nutrient conditions.
