Percentage of samples falling within MPN confidence intervals for each method were as follows: Dairy – Seafoods – Aaoac – Vegetables cheddar cheese fish frozen beef raw ground broccoli frozen cottage cheese oysters fresh meat pot pie frozen corn frozen milk pasteurized xoac fresh turkey raw ground mushrooms fresh milk raw yogurt.
Statistical analyses were done by Mr. Based upon the results of this study, we qoac that any of the three rapid methods may be used effectively to differentiate and confirm coliforms or E.
The results of samples of 20 foods were collected and statistically analyzed. For the Petrifilm EC, the respective percentages were This oyster tissue activity apparently interferes with the obvious expression of red coliform CFUs. Also, none of the mean comparisons for each method and aoaac differed significantly.
Five separate lots of each product were tested and each lot was represented by low, medium and high total coliform and E. However, there was no significant difference between the MPN and other methods for coliforms. However, comparison of ColiChrome 2 Redigel with the other 2 rapid methods showed The mean comparisons for each method and level indicated no significant differences among any of the methods or levels.
Bontrager of RCR Scientific. Cultures were grown 24 hours in tryptone broth at aoacc C and then washed 3 times with Butterfield’s Phosphate Buffer. Blue gassing colonies were counted at 48 h and recorded as E.
Precollab Study – Micrology Labs
At 24 h, two typical isolated colonies were picked from each EMB plate and transferred to individual plate count agar slants. However, there was a significant difference between the VRB Redigel and all the other methods with the Duncan mean comparison for coliforms. Likewise, the Duncan mean comparisons aoa E. Other companies in the U. This approach has been used and accepted as valid in past studies 5,6.
In-house studies with fresh clams and mussels have indicated that this activity is either lacking in their tissues or is at such low levels as to not interfere with excellent recovery of total coliforms with ColiChrome 2 Redigel. Forgot username or password?
Therefore, 15 samples of each of the 20 products were tested by each method. The mean comparisons for each method and level indicated no significant differences among any of the methods and levels except for MPN with all the others at the low levels for coliforms. The actual counts are recorded in Table 5. It is not only bulky and time consuming to set up, but confirmed results may not be available for days. Total coliforms produce the enzyme galactosidase which cleaves the first substrate to form an insoluble red dye.
The MPN and VRB Redigel differed in corn, meat pot pie, and pasteurized milk at the low levels, the pepper at medium level and the pasteurized milk at the high level. The data presented in this paper were from the 24 h. The mean comparisons for each method and level indicated a significant difference between the MPN and all other methods at the low levels for coliforms, with no significant difference at high and medium levels.
Also, thanks to F.
The study was submitted to the AOAC for the purpose of receiving permission to do an official collaborative study with the goal of having ColiChrome 2 Redigel being aoc as an official method of the AOAC. The mean comparisons for each method and level indicated no significant differences among the methods.
The foods were spiked with a mixture of the following coliforms. The decision to base this study on a comparison of ColiChrome 2 Redigel to the standard MPN aowc was influenced by the fact that other recent collaborative studies have been done and approved on 9666.23 basis of this format 5,6.
All plates and tubes were incubated together in the same incubator when possible to eliminate any possible variation in results from incubation differences. The mean comparisons for each method and level indicated no significant differences among any of the methods.
