Clostridium Botulinum Detection and Control


Evaluate the feasibility of using biological competition (biocontrols) and high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) in foods to prevent outgrowth and toxin production by C. botulinum. Evaluate a sensitive ELISA-ELCA system to replace the mouse bioessay for C. botulinum detection. Determine the time-to-toxin production of strains isolated form botulism outbreaks.
