Behaviour of cold-adapted Listeria monocytogenes under conditions representative of meat processing plantsDownload
The objective of this study was to examine filamentation characteristics of cold-adapted Listeria monocytogenes under conditions representative of a meat processing plant. Initial analysis of 16 strains found three strains with a wide range of filamentation characteristics and these were used in...
Shiga toxin producing Escherichia coli (STEC) strains are pathogens which frequently cause human intestinal diseases. The main virulence factor Shiga toxin (Stx) is encoded by the gene located on the Stx prophage and gene expression is affected by the diversity of Stx prophage genome. Nineteen...
Development of Microfluidic Chips and a Customised Flow Control System for use in a Label-Free CytometerDownload
Conventional cytometry uses fluorescently labelled cells that are laborious and costly to prepare. Using a label-free technique, individual cells can be differentiated by light scattering patterns, a result of different physical attributes. This thesis describes the development of a microfluidic...
Development of imaging-based techniques to examine signalling properties of channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) leukocyte immune-type receptors (IpLITRs)Download
Cells of the innate immune system have the ability to rapidly detect and eliminate pathogens using surface-expressed immunoregulatory receptors that translate extracellular binding into effector functions such as degranulation, cytokine secretion, cell-mediated cytotoxicity, and phagocytosis....
Forward and Side Two Dimensional Scattered Light Patterns Studies of Single Cell for Label-Free Flow CytometryDownload
A technique using two dimensional scattered light patterns from single cells to extract useful information from cells has been investigated experimentally and numerically. The technique can be implemented in label-free cytometry as an alternative to conventional fluorescent-activated flow...
Identifying and Characterizing Red Blood Cell Microvesiculation, Phosphatidylserine and CD47 Expression As a Predictor of Red Blood Cell In Vitro Quality Following Hypothermic StorageDownload
Abstract: Proper preservation of the quality of stored red blood cells (RBC) is fundamental for successful blood transfusion. RBC microparticles (RMPs) have been shown to be harmful effectors of inflammation and coagulation posttransfusion, as well as in vitro indicators of RBC function and...
The growth of Listeria monocytogenes and spoilage microorganisms is a concern in sodium-reduced ready-to-eat (RTE) meats. To assess the microbial risk of sodium-reduced RTE meats, the microbiota of retail RTE meats was profiled and the growth of L. monocytogenes and an autochthonous microbiota...
