Liquid two phase systems suitable for the concentration of phages phi X174, λ, and MS2 were applied and the measured phage distributions are presented. A simple semiempirical method is described for the determination of phase diagrams necessary for the optimum application of the systems studied. This method has made it possible to describe the phase curves of the PEG6000 - NaDS and PEG20,000 - NaDS systems in the form of y=(a + xc + bc)/(x + b) for an ionic environment like the synthetic medium M9 supplemented with 0.25 mole/litre NaCl.
