Investigations of bacterial survival in natural environments have indicated that some organisms lose culturability on appropriate media under certain conditions and yet still exhibit signs of metabolic activity and thus viability. This reproducible loss of culturability in many bacterial species led to the description of a "Viable But Non Culturable" (VBNC) state. The purpose of this article is to determine environmental and physico-chemical factors which induce the VBNC state in a food-borne… CONTINUE READING
