This study investigated the effects of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) of goat's milk origin on growth and biofilm formation of two pathogenic strains viz. Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus. Different LAB preparations such as untreated cell free supernatants (CFSs), pH neutralized CFS (N-CFS) and heat treated CFS (H-CFS) of lactobacilli were screened for their antimicrobial and biofilm...

Abstract AimsTo develop a microassay method to detect antimicrobials produced by spore-forming bacteria, thus speeding up the discovery of new antimicrobials. Methods and resultsEnvironmental isolates were grown in 96-well plates, to allow production of antimicrobials agents, then treated with lysozyme and heat sequentially. Lysozyme-heat treatment inhibited or prevented spore-to-cell...

ABSTRACT It takes several steps to bring food from the farm to the fork (dining table), and contamination with food-borne pathogens can occur at any point in the process. Campylobacter spp. and Salmonella spp. are the main microorganisms responsible for foodborne disease in the European Union. These two pathogens are able to persist throughout the food supply chain thanks to their ability to form...

Finlay Campbell, Camilla Strang, Neil Ferguson, Anne Cori, Thibaut Jombart Recent years have seen the development of numerous methodologies for reconstructing transmission trees in infectious disease outbreaks from densely sampled whole genome sequence data. However, a fundamental and as of yet poorly addressed limitation of such approaches is the requirement for genetic diversity to arise on...

Abstract A total of 47 Listeria monocytogenes isolates were separated and identified from 153 retailed raw meat samples in Shanghai area with the highest contamination rate in pork meat (20.34%). Using multiplex PCR, these isolates were divided into 3 serogroups: 1/2a-3a, 1/2b-3b-7, and 1/2c-3c, and 1/2a-3a was predominant in these isolates. Calgary device was introduced to cultivate biofilm, and...
