The fi rst step in each experiment was to boil the broth medium very thoroughly to destroy all living organisms. Air was then admitted to the flasks to satisfy the believers in spontaneous generation, who insisted that oxygen must be present for life to originate. However, the air admitted to the broth medium was fi rst freed of living organisms in several ingenious ways. Under these conditions the broths remained perfectly sterile; no microorganisms appeared in them, showing that living things could not be generated spontaneously from the lifeless liquid.
