The selective media including NPC agar, DHL agar, MacConkey agar, and Cetrimide desoxycholate agar were compared to determine selectivity for the growth of bacteria Cetrimide desoxycholate agar was better than NPC agar, DHL agar, and MacConkey agar for the growth of psychrotrophic grarn-negatve bacteria including Pseudomonas. and for the inhibition of gram positive bacteria The specificity of resazurin reduction time test was investigated to determine post-pasteurization contamination of market milk. Equal volume of Cetrimide desoxycholate broth was added to market milk, which was then incubated at $21^{\circ}C$ for 18 hours. The growth of bacteria in the incubated milk was detected in resazurin reduction time test. The results in resazurin reduction time test and total bacteria number count of market milk after storage at $7^{\circ}C$ were relatively correlated each other. Pseudomonas was isolated most frequently from the market milk stored at $7^{\circ}C$ for 10 days, and Acinetobacter and Aeromonas followed. Acinetobacter, Pseudomonas and Enterobacter were frequently isolated from the mixture of market milk and Cetrimide desoxycholate broth incubated at $21^{\circ}C$ for 18hours in resazurin reduction time test.

NPC agar, DHL agar, MacConkey agar와 Cetrimide desoxycholate agar의 선택성을 조사 하였다". Cetrimide desoxycholate agarz 가 다른 선택성 배지에 비해 그람양성 세균을 억제하고 Pseudomonas를 비롯한 내냉성 그람음성 세균의 선택적 배양에 더 좋은 한천배지이었다. Resazurin 환원시간 검시에서 Cetrimide desoxycholate broth를 시유와 혼합하여 $21^{\circ}C$ 에 서 18 시간 배양한 후 resazurin을 첨가하여 변색되는 시간으로 2차오염 을 결정하는 방법으로서 조사하였다. Resazurin 환원시간 검사와 저장성 검사간에 81%의 관련성이 있었다. 저장성 검사의 우유에서 Pseudomonas가 가장 먼도 높게 분리되었으며 다음으로 Acinetobacter와 Aeromonas가 검출되었다 Resazurin 환원시간 검사에는 Acinetobacter, Pseudomonas, Enterobacter의 순서의 빈도로 검출되었다.
