Response surface model for prediction of growth parameters from spores of Clostridium sporogenes under different experimental conditions.

Clostridium sporogenes is considered to be a non-toxingenic equivalent of proteolytic Clostridium botulinum, and it also causes food spoilage. The effects of temperature (16.6-33.4 degrees C), pH value (5.2-6.8) and concentration of sodium chloride (0.6-7.4%) on the growth parameters of C. sporogenes spores were investigated. The growth curves generated… CONTINUE READING
