Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate the possibility of using low-amperage electrical treatment (LAET) as a selective bacteriocide. Mixtures containing Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Vibrio parahaemolyticus were treated with different electric current intensities and for different times. The results showed that at 263 mA, treating bacteria for 100 ms eliminated all V. parahaemolyticus colonies. Although LAET reduced the populations of the three microorganisms, V. parahaemolyticus was more injured by LAET than S. aureus and E. coli when treated at the same processing conditions.
