The degree of cesium extraction by Rhobococcus cells was calculated by the formula (C – contaminated both with radionuclides, such as Cs ini (Avery, 1996; Yablokov, 2001), and with petroleum C )/C · 100%, where C and C are the initial and fin ini ini fin products spilled during pumping (Kondrashenko et al., final Cs concentrations in the culture medium.

In this case, a biotechnological approach involv- taneously, we determined the amount of cesium in the ing the use of microorganisms immobilized on various cell biomass washed with three changes of saline and carriers is promising for water purification.
