Introduction to Predictive Microbiology
Microorganisms react to different environmental conditions and the ability to predict their behavior can benefit your operations
Time & Location
Sep 22, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
About the Event
Predictive Microbiology is the study of how microorganisms would react to certain environmental conditions, such as that temperature and pH, with the use of mathematical functions and the aid of specialized software. While it will never replace microbial analysis, predictive microbial models can narrow down possible outcomes when introducing changes in your processes leading to a more efficient validation process.
AREAS COVERED IN SESSION
- Introduction to Predictive Microbiology
- Brief Review of Food Microbiology
- Microbial Modelling Approaches
- Applications of Predictive Microbiology in the Food Industry
- Illustration or Discussion of Actual Laboratory Experiments in Predictive Microbiology
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Dr. Dalmacio is a Professor Emeritus at the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB).
