Thermal inactivation kinetics of RV. Thermal Inactivation kinetics of RV (Wa) (a,b,c) and RV (SA11) (d,e,f) expressed with the log-linear + tail model: log10(S
(t)) = log10((Si,0 − Si,res) · exp(−kmax · t) + Si,res) (Equation 2). Plots of the estimated parameters for Equation 2 and the corresponding 95% asymptotic confidence intervals for Wa and SA11 respectively. (a, d) Si,0; (b, e) kmax; (c, f) Si,res. The results obtained at 37°C, 68°C, 72°C and 80°C are indicated by ▼, ■, ● and ◆ respectively. Symbol shaded in gray indicates data obtained with cell culture method, symbol in black by RT-qPCR and open symbol represents RT-qPCR with pre-treatment. (- -) Limit of quantification.
