Growing certain number of bacterial cells in LB - (May/30/2013 )

Hi all,

I am trying to grow around 150 E.coli cells in 200 LB. Anyone knows how long it takes to turn into exponential phase?



200 what - ul, ml, l...?

The time taken will depend on the strain, the age of the colony picked, the temperature and aeration.
