Thermal Inactivation of High Pathogenicity Avian Influenza Virus (HPAIV) in Egg Products

Investigators
Swayne, David
Institutions
USDA - Agricultural Research Service
Start date
2009
End date
2010
Objective
Develop pasteurization standards to kill avian influenza and Newcastle disease virus in egg products.
More information
APPROACH: Avian Influenza and Newcastle disease virus contaminated egg products will be generated by artificial addition of virus and mixing to produce uniform distribution. The contaminated products will be heat treated using a precise thermocycler method to develop Dt and Z values for heat inactivation using commercial pasteurization temperatures and times
