Pseudomonas spp. is the main psychrotrophic genus involved in the spoilage of raw milk and more in general of dairy products, such as mozzarella cheese. The members of this bacterial species are able to produce heat-resistant proteolytic enzymes, determining the casein hydrolysis, and as a consequence, a reduction of the shelf life and sensory quality of(More)
Optical imaging is emerging as a non-invasive and non-ionizing method for breast cancer diagnosis. A hand-held optical imager has been developed with coregistration facilities towards flexible imaging of different tissue volumes and curvatures in near real-time. Herein, fluorescence-enhanced optical imaging experiments are performed to demonstrate deeper(More)
Four different salad preparations were investigated from microbiological point of view: two were packaged in air and two under Modified Atmosphere. The samples were stored at 4 and 10 °C, and analysed at established times. Total bacterial count (TBC) was taken as the most relevant index to define their hygiene and quality at both temperatures.
