Abstract

Abstract The rapid determination of total viable cell counts in both raw and prepared foods is essential in ensuring the efficient monitoring of microbiological quality. Some non-microbiological methods can provide accurate estimations of the concentrations of microorganisms in foods, and by considering microorganisms in foods as samples of compounds that can be assayed using relatively simple biochemical tests may provide results more rapidly than conventional microbiological methods such as the total plate counts assay.
