  1. Serum bottles were inoculated at a final concentration of 5 × 105 cells/ml and incubated at 85°C. Growth was recorded during 3 days. All tests were performed in triplicate. Final cellular density reached at the stationary phase: +++, >5 × 108 to 109 cells/ml of culture; ++, 1 to 2 × 108 cells/ml of culture; +, 5 × 107 cells/ml of culture; -, no growth.
