In preparation for the validation of chemical disinfection and radiation sterilization processes, studies were performed on the development and validation of quantitative bioburden recovery methods for human bone and soft tissue and also for porcine(More)
A quantitative method was developed and validated to assess bioburden on tissue from human donors and to compare bioburden determination results to swab culture results from the same donor.
