It involves continuous air sampling for the presence of bacterial spores
, such as anthrax.
The manner in which the dissociation equilibrium shifted under pressure and temperature played a decisive role in inactivating bacterial spores
Caption: Expand and flex: Energycan be captured from bacterial spores
with an absorbent cortex layer (left) that swells when wet.
In the experiment, they slathered bacterial spores
on one side of a sheet of rubber,a dn when the sheet dried it curled up.
The Xenex robot, which uses pulsed xenon ultraviolet (UV-C) light 25,000 times more powerful than the sun, is able to eliminate bacteria, viruses, fungi and even bacterial spores
in a room in just five minutes.
The Xenex "robot" uses pulse xenon to deliver UV light throughout patient rooms, operating rooms (ORs), equipment rooms, emergency rooms, intensive care units (ICUs) and public areas to destroy viruses, bacteria and bacterial spores
in just 5-10 minutes per room.
To mimic conditions of use, the cartridges have also been validated to retain air-borne bacterial spores
Thermal sterilization has traditionally been used to inactivate bacterial spores
in low-acid foods.
Modelling Lag-Time in Predictive Microbiology with Special Reference to Lag Phase of Bacterial Spores
Microscope examination of wet mounts from these insects revealed that all of the dead larvae contained numerous uniform, highly refractive particles reminiscent of bacterial spores
Chapters on modeling and simulation discuss direct calculation of survival ratio and isothermal time equivalent in heat preservation processes, new kinetic models for inactivation of bacterial spores
, modeling heat transfer in thermal processing, heat transfer in rotary processing of canned liquid/particle mixtures, numerical model for ohmic heating of foods, and computational fluid dynamics.
According to research, the build up of bacterial spores
in the air-vents can cause health problems, particularly for those already suffering from asthma, when the system is finally used again.
