Real-time qPCR to evaluate bacterial contamination of cosmetic cream and the efficiency of protective ingredients

Goals: The absence of objectionable microorganisms in cosmetics and the effectivity of preservatives are nonetheless primarily assessed by time-consuming cultivation-based strategies. We explored the applicability of real-time qPCR and reported on the behaviour of various micro organism in artificially contaminated lotions. Strategies and outcomes: Actual-time qPCR on DNA from Burkholderia cepacia, Pluribacter gergoviae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Sphingomonas […]
