Abstract The irradiation sensitivity of fungal spores to either gamma or electron beam irradiation was evaluated in distilled water. The D10 (the dose required to reduce the initial population by 90\%) gamma values ranged from 0.236 to 0.416 kGy and from 0.209 to 0.319 kGy for Penicillium and Aspergillus species, respectively. The D10 electron beam values ranged from 0.194 to 0.341 and from 0.198 to 0.243 kGy for Penicillium and Aspergillus species, respectively. Of the aspergilli species evaluated, only half exhibited significantly (P < 0.05) greater sensitivity to the electron beam treatment compared to gamma irradiation. Four of the six penicillia species evaluated also exhibited significantly (P < 0.05) higher sensitivities to electron beam treatment.
