Ultraviolet inactivation kinetics of Escherichia coli and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis in annular reactors.

Abstract

Terrorist threats have precipitated the need for information on the ultraviolet (UV) resistance of potential biothreat agents in food processing, such as Yersinia pestis. The objective of this study was to characterize the resistance of the Yersinia species to UV treatment using a single-lamp annular UV reactor. A novel method is proposed to measure the… (More)
