Abstract: An existing mathematical model for microbial growth and inactivation in dynamically changing temperature conditions has been modified to explain the experimentally observed variability between replicate growth curves. The model incorporates a random variable parameter representing the random physiological state of the inoculum. The model is validated using experimental growth data which were obtained in time-varying temperature conditions. It is shown by Monte Carlo analyses that broad confidence bands are associated with the model predictions.
