Access from EThOS:
The effect of X-ray irradiation on Campylobacter jejuni, Campylobacter coli, Arcobacter butzleri and Salmonella Typhimurium was examined by measuring the recovery on ifferent media. Irradiation doses (1.0-7.0 kGy) caused a significant reduction in icrobial counts irrespective of the media used for recovery. Recovery was highest on Blood Mueller Hinton Agar (D-value being 3.30,3.32,3.56 and 6.86 kGy for C jejuni, C. coli, A. butzleri and S. Typhimurium respectively) and lowest on selective media (Dvalue being 3.20, 3.08, 3.36 and 3.20 kGy for C. jejuni, C. coli, A. butzleri, and S. lurium respectively).
