Abstract

DURING investigations into the efficiency of ultra-high-temperature sterilizing plants, Franklin et al.1 observed that the test organism, a strain of Bacillus stearothermophilus, was inhibited by the heated milk. Inhibition became apparent when comparisons were made between the recoveries obtained from direct plate counts and from dilution counts in which the ultra-high temperature sterilized milk was used as diluent; a similar but weaker effect on B. subtilis spores had been previously noted by Franklin et al.2.
