Viable but Nonculturable (VBNC) Bacteria
Viable but nonculturable (VBNC) bacteria describes cells that cannot be normally cultured however, “resuscitation” of these cells can be mediated by a physical and different kind of chemical stimuli.
Base Ingredients of Microbiology Media
Culture media provides a habitat with suitable nutrients, energy sources, and certain environmental conditions for the growth of microorganisms. The components of the culture media range from simple sugars to peptones, salts, antibiotics, and complex indicators.
Food for thought: EN ISO 11133:2014
The new EN ISO 11133:2014 quality-assured culture media for food and water testing to enhance consumer safety. The ultimate aim of the new standard is to further improve the safety of the food and beverage products we consume.
EN ISO 11133 and Water for the Preparation and Performance Testing of Microbiological Culture Media
See how two water sources compare when preparing and performance testing microbiological culture media acc. to EN ISO 11133: centrally purified water vs. water from a Milli-Q® IX system were assessed. Tests included media specific for Listeria and Salmonella pathogens.
Vegetable and Plant Peptones: Alternatives to Animal-derived Peptones in Microbiology
Plant-based vegetable peptones are strictly of non-animal origin, so they pose no risk of carrying animal and human diseases such as BSE into fermentations and produced materials.
