Abstract Lag phase durations (tLag) of individual Listeria monocytogenes cells were analysed using the NightOwl Molecular Imaging System, and results were compared with mean individual cell lag times (tL) obtained from the detection time (td) method using Bioscreen. With Bioscreen, an average tL of 6.39+/-0.89 h was obtained from five separate experiments. With the NightOwl method, an average tLag of 2.73+/-0.06 h was obtained from three experiments consisting of eight total replicates. Lag values from the NightOwl and Bioscreen are related by the equation: tLag = tL + DT, where DT is the doubling time. The equivalent tLag mean value for the Bioscreen method was 7.11+/-0.84 h. Individual lag times measured by both methods were normally distributed (r2 for Bioscreen and NightOwl ranged from 0.951 to 0.999 and from 0.884 to 0.982, respectively). The results suggest that the NightOwl method can provide accurate estimates of individual cell lag times, which will facilitate the development of combined discrete continuous models for bacterial growth.
