Abstract

SUMMARY: A mathematical expression for oxygen-induced death of dehydrated bacteria is reported. Data in the literature for 8UK were analysed and the expression describes viability changes over a range of 10, oxygen concentration effects over a range of 400 and the effect of time up to 3 h. The expression should apply to the oxygen-induced death of other dehydrated bacteria.
