|Pathogen Modeling Program Version 7.0 - Overview|
- 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.
