PMID:  11315166     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Survival has been determined for Pasteurella pneumotropica on various surfaces found in an animal room at 23+/-1 degrees C and 50+/-10% relative humidity. Longest survival (120 min) was found on mouse hair, shortest (< 30 min) on laboratory coat fabric. Transmission experiments were performed using sentinel animals in order to evaluate the efficiency of their use for the detection of P. pneumotropica in quarantined mice. In sentinels exposed to infected mice by close contact, P. pneumotropica was detected by culture 2 weeks post-exposure and seroconversion 3 weeks after contact. Transfer of soiled bedding from Pasteurella-infected mice did not infect sentinels within a period of 12 weeks as tested by cultivation or serum antibodies.
