Many bacterial species, some molds, parasites, and viruses, but not yeasts, are involved in foodborne diseases. Several species of bacteria, molds, and yeasts are also used in bioprocessing. 2 Nomenclature of Microorganisms Each microorganism has only one officially accepted name by international agreement. This system provides communication. Microorganisms are named according to a system of binomial nomenclature; each composed of two words and must follow certain rules of Latin grammar; the first word is the genus name and the second word is the species name.

It is difficult to develop mathematical models for lag phase due to incomplete understanding of the nature of the initial physiological state of cells, and changes takes place during adaptation. 23). 23) where B is the constant. 2). Inactivation/Survival Models In practice, survival curves are often nonlinear and a shoulder phase can be observed before initiation of an exponential decline, particularly for mild pro­ cesses. 24) can be used to express the effect of shoulder phase. However, this model cannot estimate the shoulder time accurately, its performance varies and much depends on experimental data.

This can be used with several transition functions or adjustment factors. 28) Where kmax is the maximum specific inactivation rate (h 1) and St is shoulder period (h). However, these models show a satisfactory fit and can be used in particular situations for certain microbes only. Moreover, the number of parame­ ters exceeds four, and such complexity prevents them from easily being applied to process treatment calculations. 29) for microbial evolution in thermal processes as a primary model. It is the first-order kinetic model when β = 1.
