Comments P.303 2nd paragraph: "Table 14.11 shows the results of sterilizing enzyme preparations with SC-CO2 at 20 MPa and 35˚C for 2 h. After wet E. coli (water content: 74%) or baker’s yeast (water content: 68%) was mixed with crude, dry α-amylase or lipase at a weight ratio of 9:1, the microorganisms in the enzyme preparations could be sterilized with SC-CO2." For water fraction by volume in E. coli and mammalian cell see BNID 100044 and 103960 respectively. For water fraction by mass in yeast see BNID 103689
