Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This study compared the performance of various methods for cultivating Listeria monocytogenes in broth medium (Tryptone soya broth with 0.6 % yeast extract). The cultivation methods compared were shaken flask, static flask and a 2.5 litre stirred bioreactor system. Strains NCTC 10357 (serotype 1a) and NCTC 11994 (serotype 4b) were investigated using shaken and static flasks at 37 °C using both the spiral plate method and the conventional plate method for growth assessment. Results demonstrated that the spiral plate enumeration method produced more consistent results and smoother growth curves than the conventional dilution plate method.
