Heterotrophic Plate Count for Bottled Water Safety Management
Heterotrophic bacteria are able to form biofilms in water processing systems, adhering to pipe materials and colonizing surfaces. The aim of our research was to identify the critical points in the process of bottled water production at which controls can be applied to prevent, reduce, or eliminate water safety hazards. Microbiological monitoring was conducted using the plate count method and luminometry. To identify the bacterial isolates, we used polyphasic identification based on biochemicaldoi:10.3390/pr8060739 fatcat:ogv3yfijcjb23eavwmv5dllhxe
