Re: Boiling Water

There is a range of pasteurisation methods. You can pasteurise milk by holding it at 70 C for about 20 seconds. This kills most of potentially harmful bacteria, but not all. It is, however, very useful in reducing disease.

Re: Boiling Water

... need to achieve sterility. Brief boiling will do that, or even holding the water at 70 C plus for at least half an hour. This is the principle of pasteurisation. If you boil milk, you change it chemically. To make it safer to drink without destroying it, simply holding it at 70C for a time will ...

What happens is that you kill most of the microorganism, and since this is repeated daily, and considering that the ...

PHENOL-CHLOROFORM EXTRACTION USING UNPASTEURISED STILTON!

... on why it didnt work? All reagents were new therefore this was not the problem! I was thinking perhaps there is something which usually during pasteurisation is killed but as it's unpasteurised there may be something which is inhibiting this extraction method. Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks ...
