The fate of Escherichia coli O157:H7 was monitored in salami during conditioning of batter, fermentation and drying of sticks, and storage of slices. The raw batter (75% pork: 25% beef, wt/wt, fat content about 20%) was inoculated with a pediococcal starter culture (about 10(8) CFU/g) and a five-strain cocktail of E. coli O157:H7 ( > or = 2 x 10(7) CFU/g)(More)
Pepperoni batter was prepared with fat contents of about 15, 20, and 32% (wt/wt) and inoculated with a pediococcal starter culture and > or = 2.0 x 10(7) CFU/g of a five-strain inoculum of Escherichia coli O157:H7. The batter was fermented at 96 degrees F (ca. 36 degrees C and 85% relative humidity (RH) to pH < or = 4.8 and then dried at 55 degrees F (ca.(More)
A raw, pepperoni batter (75% pork:25% beef with a fat content of about 32%) was inoculated with a pediococcal starter culture (about 10(8) cfu/g) and a five-strain cocktail of Escherichia coli O157:H7 (> or = 2 x 10(7) cfu/g), mixed with non-meat ingredients, and then hand-stuffed into 55 mm fibrous casings to form sticks. The numbers of the pathogen were(More)

Immer häufiger stehen dem Arzt Volumendatensätze eines Patienten von unterschiedlichen, bildgebenden Modalitäten zur Diagnose und Therapieplanung zur Verfügung. Vor allem die Fusionierung von CTund MRIDaten kann in der klinischen Routine erhebliche Erleichterungen bringen. Im allgemeinen wird bei der Registrierung von zwei dreidimensionalen(More)
