Development and Evaluation of a 16S Ribosomal DNA Array-Based Approach for Describing Complex Microbial Communities in Ready-To-Eat Vegetable Salads Packed in a Modified Atmosphere

Listeria in pre packed salad. Sample prep in Seward Stomacher®

A Stomacher® 400 was used to test salad samples as part of the development and evaluation of a 16S ribosomal DNA Array-Based Approach for describing complex microbial communities in ready-to-eat vegetable salads packed in a modified atmosphere. The practical implications of these results are that microbial communities in ready-to-eat vegetable salads can be diverse and that microbial composition is dependent both on the origin of the raw material and on the storage conditions.
