Electron Beam Irradiation Dose Dependently Damages the Bacillus Spore Coat and Spore Membrane

Figure 2

Inactivation of B. atrophaeus spores as a function of electron beam irradiation dose ( ). Linear regression ( ) extrapolation produced a D10 value of 1.3 kGy. Error bars in both the - and -axis directions indicate the accuracy in the measurements of dose and colony counts, respectively.
