Eight strains of Listeria monocytogenes (7644, 19112, 15313, Scott A, LCDC, 10403S, SLCC, and 1370) produce biofilms when grown on polyvinyl chloride microtiter well plates. The growth medium (tryptic soy broth [TSB] or modified Welshimer's broth [MWB] at 32 degrees C) influenced the amount of biofilm formed; maximum biofilms were formed in MWB by six(More)
This study evaluated the efficacy of ozone, chlorine, and hydrogen peroxide to destroy Listeria monocytogenes planktonic cells and biofilms of two test strains, Scott A and 10403S. L. monocytogenes was sensitive to ozone (O3), chlorine, and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Planktonic cells of strain Scott A were completely destroyed by exposure to 0.25 ppm O3(More)
