Introduction: After the Pauline Fathers abandoned the project of expanding the Skałka Burial Site, an idea of continuing the national Pantheon in Krakow was put forward. It was proposed to use for that purpose a number of crypts underneath the Saints Peter and Paul Church. Aim of the study was to estimate the prevalence of moulds in the first open crypts, important to start the refurbishment. Material and methods: The samples of air from the crypts were collected by means of the sedimentation method. Also/In addition, swabs and scrapings were collected from the crypts. Each sample was cultured on Sabouraud medium and cultured moulds were identified on the basis of macroscopic appearance of colonies and characteristic morphological elements obtained from microcultures. The mould load in the 1 m3 of the air determined as colony forming units (CFU) was calculated using the Omeliansky formula. Results: In the crypts I and II the mean value for the fungi spores in the air was 1179 and 1719 CFU respectively, whereas in the crypts III and IV 5244 and 3933 CFU respectively. In the first two crypts Penicillium genera constituted 50% of fungi (species) and various species of Aspergillus consituted 4.5-5.3%. Conversely, in the following two crypts about 50% of the isolated fungi constituted Aspergillus spp. and the remaining percentage was covered by the other types of moulds. Conclusions: The results demonstrate that contamination of fungal spores can lead to a potential harmful effect on the health of workers. Therefore, the destruction of the fungal flora was necessary before the refurbishment. © 2012 Cornetis. Source

Bacterial diseases cause serious problems in cultivation of onion (Allium cepa L.) in Poland and abroad. There are several reasons of the losses in onion production caused by these diseases, e.g. weather conditions, biology and epidemiology of bacteria, lack of efficient pesticides, lack of disease-resistant cultivars. According to reports, onion is infected by following bacterial pathogens: Burkholderia gladioli pv. alliicola, Burkholderia cepacia, Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum, Dickeya chrysanthemi, Serratia plymuthica, Serratia marcescens, Enterobacter cloacae, Pantoea ananatis, Pseudomonas marginalis pv. marginalis and Pseudomonas viridiflava.

The objective of the research study was to determine the occurrence frequency of Cronobacter sp bacteria in some selected food products, particularly in the preparations for infants and babies. Analyzed were 160 samples from dairy factories; the samples tested comprised fresh and powdered milk products. The retail product samples comprised the preparations for infants and babies, seasoning products, and teas (black, herbal, and fruit teas). The Cronobacter sp bacteria were not found in the preparations for infants, however, these bacteria were isolated from fresh milk obtained in a dairy factory, as well as from some seasoning products and teas.
