Predictive modelling of growth of Escherichia coli O157:H7: the effects of temperature, pH and sodium chloride.

Abstract

The growth responses of Escherichia coli O157:H7 as affected by NaCl concentration, pH value and storage temperature were studied in laboratory medium. Growth curves at concentrations of NaCl in the range 0.5-6.5% (w/v), pH values in the range 4.0-7.0 and storage temperatures in the range 10-30 degrees C were fitted using the Gompertz routine and the… (More)
