bioinactivation: a package for modelling microbial inactivation in R.
The bioinactivation package implements several function for the modelization of microbial inactivation in R. It includes:
- functions for the prediction of isothermal or non-isothermal microbial inactivation.
- functions for the adjustment of inactivation models to isothermal experiments.
- functions for the fitting of inactivation models to dynamic experiments.
- functions for the calculation of prediction intervals for isothermal or non-isothermal microbial inactivation processes.
The inactivation models most commonly used in industry and academia are implemented in this package:
- Bigelow’s model.
- Peleg’s model.
- Mafart’s model.
- Geeraerd’s model.
Furthermore, this package includes some training data sets mimicking isothermal and non-isothermal inactivation experiments.
