Acceleration phase

Acceleration phase

(Science: cell biology, cell culture) a period of increasing growth before the log phase in a culture of microbes.

After the culture is started on a medium, at first there is no growth (the lag phase) and then the microbes start to gradually grow (acceleration phase) until they reach a constant maximum rate of growth (log phase).
