Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


Photorepair, or photoreactivation, processes have been examined for several micro-organisms following exposure to continuous UV light, but there is no information available in the literature concerning the photorepair of L. monocytogenes following UV damage. This examination of photoreactivation involved inactivation of samples of L. monocytogenes using pulsed UV light from a xenon flashlamp, followed by photorepair using continuous non-UV light from a bank of fluorescent lamps in a light cabinet. The following studies were carried out, with the results documented and discussed.
