Survival and viability of nonculturableEscherichia coli andVibrio cholerae in the estuarine and marine environment
Plating methods for estimating survival of indicator organisms, such asEscherichia coli, and water-borne pathogens includingVibrio cholerae, have severe limitations when used to estimate viableExpand
Viable but Non-Culturable Vibrio cholerae and Related Pathogens in the Environment: Implications for Release of Genetically Engineered Microorganisms
In a series of microcosm and field studies, we have observed that over time V. cholerae and related human pathogens enter a viable but non-culturable state. Direct viable counts by epifluorescentExpand
Ecology of Vibrio parahaemolyticus and Vibrio vulnificus in the Coastal and Estuarine Waters of Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, and Washington (United States)
ABSTRACT Vibrio parahaemolyticus and Vibrio vulnificus, which are native to estuaries globally, are agents of seafood-borne or wound infections, both potentially fatal. Like all vibrios autochthonousExpand
Viable but nonrecoverable stage of Salmonella enteritidis in aquatic systems.
An environmental isolate (13- 1BB ) of Salmonella enteritidis serogroup C1 was inoculated into sterile Potomac River water microcosms to observe survival and culturability of the organism byExpand
Systematic study of the genus Vogesella gen. nov. and its type species, Vogesella indigofera comb. nov.
A blue-pigmented colony that had a metallic copper-colored sheen was isolated in 1973 from a standard spread plate count preparation of oxidation pond sediment. Over the next 11 years, an additionalExpand

Numerical taxonomy of phenanthrene-degrading bacteria isolated from the Chesapeake Bay.
Phenanthrene-degrading bacteria were isolated from Chesapeake Bay samples by the use of a solid medium which had been overlaid with an ethanol solution of phenanthrene before inoculation. EighteenExpand
Vibrios as Autochthonous Flora of Neritic Sharks
Summary The bacterial flora of 28 neritic sharks, comprising five species, was examined. Representatives of the genus Vibrio and related species were isolated, including V. alginolyticus, V. harveyi,Expand
Viability and virulençe of Escherichia coli suspended by membrane chamber in semitropical ocean water
Escherichia coli H10407 was suspended in seawater (38.5‰ salinity) contained in membrane chambers (0.4-μm polycarbonate membrane) incubated in situ at 25°C in Nixon's Harbor, South Bimini, Bahamas.Expand
Specificity of slide agglutination test for detecting bacterial fish pathogens
Abstract The usefulness of the slide agglutination assay for a rapid diagnosis of fish diseases was evaluated using a total of 80 pathogenic bacteria and environmental isolates belonging to theExpand
