Who was Louis Pasteur and what did he do?

Louis Pasteur was a 19th-century biochemist whose work with germs and microorganisms opened up whole new fields of scientific inquiry, aided industries ranging from wine to silk, and made him one of the world's most celebrated scientists.

Louis Pasteur was born on 27 December 1822 in Dole, Jura, France. He was to become known as the founder of microbiology. Pasteur was the one who discovered the role of bacteria in fermentation. In 1857, through experimentation and research with bacteria, he determined that certain microorganisms contaminated fermenting beverages. He used this knowledge to develop a process whereby liquids such as milk were heated to kill all bacteria and moulds which were already contained within them. This process became known as pasteurisation.

The first test of pasteurisation was completed by Pasteur with the assistance of Claude Bernard, on 20 April 1862. Pasteur then recognised that infectious diseases are caused by microorganisms, and his research soon led others to investigate sterilisation, disinfection, vaccines, and eventually antibiotics. Pasteur created and tested vaccines for diphtheria, cholera, yellow fever, plague, rabies, anthrax, and tuberculosis. The rabies vaccine was first tested on a nine-year-old boy named Joseph Meister, on 6 July 1885. Meister was bitten by a rabid dog, and was subsequently treated by Pasteur with a rabies virus he had grown in rabbits but weakened by drying, a treatment he had earlier tried on dogs. The treatment was successful and the boy survived without ever developing rabies. Joseph Meister later went on to become a caretaker at the Pasteur Institute.

Pasteur was subject to strokes from the early age of 46, and eventually died in 1895 from complications resulting from these strokes.

Was Louis Pasteur a Freemason?

Louis Pasteur was most likely never a Freemason. He is not listed in William R. Denslow's definitive book, 10,000 Famous Freemasons, or by any other reputable source. Understand that, in most cases, it is virtually impossible to prove a negative, therefore one cannot say with absolute certainty that Pasteur was NOT a Freemason, but there is no evidence to indicate that he was.

Masonry, like most groups, is very proud of its famous members and usually points them out, so if evidence existed, Pasteur would be claimed as a member by the Fraternity. When only anti-masons are the ones claiming someone was a Mason, it is very unlikely that the person really was. Despite what some say, Freemasonry simply isn't a "secret society" and there are generally plenty of membership records to be found.

Anesthesiologists

How much does an anaesthesiologist earn?

Anesthesiologists may be salaried by a hospital or clinic and/or receive compensation on an hourly rate.

In 2009, the median expected salary for a typical Physician - Anaesthesiology in the United States is $292,045. (see also related link)

Depending on experience, the actual position, and the location, hourly compensation can range from about $70 to $100 USD up to as much as $300 to $500 USD.

----Other Answers----

My mother is anaesthesiologist in France, she earn 270.000 Euro a year, and the mean is at 120.000 in France, it depend a lot of the choice Hospital or private clinic.

----

About $300 an hour. BUT to get there you better be one of the VERY BEST medical students in a very tough area of medical knowledge.

----

Well, anaesthesiologists get paid about 200 dollars an hour, and if you have your PH.d, then you get paid about 300 dollars an hour, totalling up to about 1.57 million a year.

----

Well, my dad is an anaesthesiologist and he makes about 5,000 each session. That equals about 5,000,000 a year

----

$70 an hour than you gradually work your way up

----

I am going through residency to become an anaesthesiologist. I made 50,000 my first year of residency and im in my second year now. My teacher is an anaesthesiologist and he makes around 300,000 but he's only just started the real job.

----

An anaesthesiologist in Minneapolis can make anywhere from $207,000 to $327,600, the typical salary is $267,000.

----

My dad's an anesthesiologist, and he makes $400,000
Anesthesiologists make $145,600+ every year.
Median salary: $292,000

Top pay: $408,000

The high pay for anesthesiologists reflects inherent stress in a job that is literally about life and death. "Anesthesiologists get patients safely and intact through operations while surgeons do things that would otherwise kill them, The big salaries are also a payback for the 12-plus years of training required before an anesthesiologist can start practicing

What did Louis Pasteur believe made food go bad and caused disease?

He believed that germs caused food to go bad.

That's why he thought that all milk should be pasteurised, because coming straight from the cow it is riddled with germs. So it is boiled.

When was pasteurization discovered and by whom?

The first pasteurization test was completed by Louis Pasteur (whom its named after) and Claude Bernard on April 20, 1862. It was discovered prior to that but Pasteur had not performed an experiment.

The process was to heat a liquid (normally milk) to a high temperature, roughly 71C, and then drastically cool it for at least 15 secs. This kills off most of the bacteria.

The amount of time that the liquid is heated and cooled, and to what temperature, is dependent on the liquid being pasteurized. This means the bad bacteria and harmful fungi can be more efficiently stunted in growth.

AnswerLouis Pasteur

Louis Pasteur was the main one doing the job in some sayings. Claude Bernard was also there to help discover this process. Louis was just he first one to say something about it.

What is the functions of Pasteur salt solutions in fermentations?

The pasteur salts in solution act as a buffer to any acids the yeast may create. Since yeast only converts sugar (most likely sucrose or glucose) to ethanol under anaerobic conditions, and it is unreasonable to assume that there will be no oxygen present in the laboratory, some acetic acid is created as a result. The pasteur salts act as buffers to the acidity so that the proteins in the yeast do not become denatured. Hope this was the answer you were looking for

How did Louis Pasteur disprove the spontaneous generation theory?

Louis broiled broth for 15 min. He then let it sit for one year in a swan neck flask. He noticed that some dust had accumulated in the top part of the flask. So he took a sample, form the broth inside the flask. He noticed that nothing was inside of growing in it. So he then preceded to shake the broth in the flask in such a way, that it would touch the dust at the top. He then took a sample from that and it was highly bacteria ridden.
