Katherine, USP has nothing to do with the level of activity characterized by disnfectants.? The concept the USP attempts to address is the carry-over into culture of sufficient preservative that the viable microbes don't grow.? Preservatives, esp. parabens, don't kill as rapidly as disinfecatants - rather they inhibit and the bugs die off.? Success crtieria established by USP specify kill - so one must ensure that the bugs are dead.



It's not clear what the original poster wanted in the "prep test.".? The USP is pretty simple to follow.

What dio you mean "prep" test??? 



Neutralization is intended to allow detection of viable by not growing bugs.

Hi there,

I was wondering if you would be willing to share the SOP you wrote on how to
perform the prep test?  I am having a hard time figuring it out.  I also
think it is kind of an oxymoron to be testing antimicrobial stuff.
Antimicrobial is good, right?  Why ruin it by neutralizing?

Thanks for your time,

Christina Benson

Christina:In testing antimicrobials, neutralization should always be carried out 
to define the testing period. ?For example, you are looking at bleach and wonder 
how many bacteria are killed in a 15 second contact period. ?You expose the 
bacteria to the bleach for 15 seconds, then recover them in neutralizer. ?This 
stops the action of the bleach, the test period is defined as 15 seconds. ?Then 
plate the solution and wait for the 24 to 48 hours to see how many organisms 
survived and calculated your reduction from the inoculum (or zero time) organism 
count. ?If you had recovered the organisms in phosphate buffer or water, the 
bleach would still be acting on the organisms over the period required to 
enumerate the bacteria and your test period now is undefined or at best the 
whole 24 to 48 hours it takes to look at the plates. ?Regardless of
 the 
antimicrobial, whether fast acting like bleach/disinfectants or slower like 
silver or triclosan,
 neutralization is required for understanding kill times. ?Common neutralizers 
include letheen broth, D/E broth, and SCDLP, but you need to determine the 
appropriate neutralizer for your antimicrobial.

Respected Reserchers,
I am trying to set a chemostat experimental set up using CDC reacter for
growing Aeromonas hydrophila biofilm on Reverse osmosis membrane.

Can any body give suggetion about the strength of LB media sutable for the
experimnet and the dilution facter.Also how long i shuld run the chemostat
to get a robust biofilm on RO surface.

Thaking you in advance,
Sajeesh

sirs and madams

here i have one problem with cy3 cy5 fluorescent images they show only light
imaging cntrovercy during epifluorescent microscopic observation.i cont
differentiate the cy5 images from cy3 images. cy5 images are not visualised
under this epifluorescent microscope, so please help to me reduce such
problems during visualisation. if possible explain with diagrams.

with regards
subhash.g.venkat
