AIMS To investigate the adhesion of Listeria monocytogenes 10403S to 17 different, food-use approved materials representing metals, rubbers and polymers. METHODS AND RESULTS Adhesion assays were conducted by placing 'coupons' of the materials in planktonic cultures at 30 degrees C, and then immediately withdrawing them ('short contact') or leaving them submerged in the cultures for 2 h. Adherent cells were recovered by sonication. In the short contact experiments, the logarithm of the mean… CONTINUE READING
