AIMS The development of a rapid method for the selective detection and enumeration of the total and viable vegetative cell and spore content of thermophilic bacilli in milk powder by PCR. METHODS AND RESULTS Quantitative PCR and microscopy indicate the presence of up to 2.9 log units more cells in milk powder than accounted for by plate counting due to the majority of cells being killed during milk processing. Two approaches for viable and dead cell differentiation of thermophilic bacilli by… CONTINUE READING
