Lag phase durations (tLag) of individual Listeria monocytogenes cells were analysed using the NightOwl Molecular Imaging System, and results were compared with mean individual cell lag times (tL) obtained from the detection time (td) method using Bioscreen. With Bioscreen, an average tL of 6.39+/-0.89 h was obtained from five separate experiments. With the… CONTINUE READING
