Scientific poster, presentation or proceeding




Food poisoning caused by ingestion of Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxins is one of the most common foodborne diseases. Staphylococcus aureus is a well-studied, omnipresent bacterium which is not only found in the environment but is also part of the commensal mammalian flora. This microorganism produces enterotoxins, protein by their structure which can cause gastro-enteritis, emesis or act as superantigen. The methods used to its confirmation in food samples are mainly of microbiological character and are not quantitative. They may not be used in prevention of any foodborne outbreaks or to …
