Bacterial spores are metabolically dormant and are extremely resistant to environmental stresses for long periods of times. Bacterial spores are ubiquitously present in fresh vegetables, milk as well as ingredients for processed foods such as herbs and spices or dairy products. The way in which spores grow and germinate in food products differs between bacteria. Rachna Pandey focuses on the development of an image analysis tool for the measurement of germination and outgrowth of spores, as well as the internal pH of the cells at single spore/cell level.
