24 hours is not enough time for incubation prior to ATP or CO2 detection, especially for stressed organisms. 48 hours may work for a bioburden assay but certainly not for a sterility test. Michael

Your reply confirmed my theory that they would be detected at 48hours, but I still wonder whether  if ATP bioluminescence or Carbon dioxide detection could detect their presence in a test sample with a 24 hour incubation period by metabolism because cells are not detected for these 2 species until after a 48-hour incubation period.  When it comes to rapid  microbial test methods, most companies prefer a 24 hour incubation period instead of 48 hours. But, it is still better detect microorganisms in a test sample at 48-hours than at 5 to 7 days.
