This predictive microbiology application was designed as a research and instructional tool for estimating the effects of multiple variables on the growth, inactivation or survival of food borne pathogens.
Most of the models are based on extensive experimental data of microbial behavior in liquid microbiological media.
There can be no guarantee that predicted values will match those that would occur in any specific food system. Before they can be used in such a manner, the models should be validated by the user for each specific food of interest.
