The kinetics of destruction of Escherichia coli cells suspended in a solution by microwave irradiation with a microwave oven were studied. During radiation at several powers, the temperature of 0.01 M phosphate buffer (PB), pH 7.0, in a glass beaker increased linearly at a rate of A (degrees Centigrade per second) according to the exposure time. When E. coli cells suspended in PB were exposed in the same beaker, the number of viable cells decreased according to the exposure time and the power… CONTINUE READING
