Hallo all,

I was wondering if anyone here could explain me how the MPN method table works.
I know what it is and how to work with it, but I cant figure out what math is behind the shedule.

So my question in short is: how is the MPN table build?
I cant seem to find a general mathmodel or simple formula to calcute the MPN myself instead of looking it up at some table.

any ideas?

yeah, I really want to know the math behind it.

I'll look into your file, but at first sight it doenst really explain how they formed the tables (mpn index).

Any idea who created this method?

If I am not mistaken you guys always simply use the tables to check how much g/ml , correct?

Yes, I also use the table, you can think it comes from the statistical rules.

It does indeed come from some statistical rules, but I do not seem to find any answer.
The people I spoke , all use it, but no one seems to really know whats behind it.

I found one important literature link, however I can not seem to find this article.
==> J. L. Oblinger and J. A. Koburger. 1975. "Understanding and Teaching the Most Probable Number Technique." J. Milk Food Technol. 38(9): 540-545.
It is the only literature reference I could find about the subject, but the article itself is almost impossible to find I think.
