This is done by pasteurization, a method named after the French bacteriologist louis pasteur.
At this town, and in this yard, louis pasteur spent his childhood.
louis pasteur is the most striking figure in nineteenth century science.
Any account of the scientific progress of this century which omits the name of louis pasteur would be lamentably incomplete.
louis pasteur did not always take the shortest road either to reach his class or to return to his work at home.
The prevention of disease, as important as its cure, owes an incalculable debt to louis pasteur.
During his long and busy life louis pasteur has been honored after every fashion known to men.
But in 1862 louis pasteur proved that this seeming spontaneous generation is in reality due to the existence of germs in the air.
It is almost superfluous to add that the name of this marvellous chemist was louis pasteur.
Pasteur Pas·teur (pās-tûr', pä-stɶr'), Louis. 1822-1895.
French chemist who founded modern microbiology, invented pasteurization, and developed vaccines for anthrax, rabies, and chicken cholera.
French chemist who founded modern microbiology. His early work with fermentation led him to invent the process of pasteurization. Pasteur established that microorganisms cause communicable diseases and infections.
Our Living Language : Through his experiments with bacteria in the 1860s, French chemist Louis Pasteur disproved the centuries-old belief that disease was caused by spontaneous generation, the idea that disease-causing parasites arise spontaneously in an organism. Pasteur demonstrated that the fermentation of wine to vinegar was caused by living agents that entered the wine from the air surrounding it, proving instead that microorganisms were able to reproduce. Drawing the conclusion that airborne agents could enter the bodies of humans and animals and cause disease, he then devoted his research to isolating the organisms that cause specific diseases and finding treatments to prevent them. He developed vaccines for anthrax, chicken cholera, and rabies. Pasteur's germ theory of disease was not immediately accepted, but thanks to the work of other pioneering scientists, such as Robert Koch, it eventually provided the foundation for modern branches of medicine such as microbiology, bacteriology, virology, and immunology. Pasteur is also known for developing pasteurization (originally for wine), a process of heating and rapidly cooling liquids that is used to kill disease-causing bacteria, particularly in dairy products.
