This study was conducted to investigate the characteristics of strains which were isolated from market milk treated with ESL(extended shelf life) and conventional system, and to compare the microbiological quality of ESL milk with conventional milk. In order to characterize the isolated strains, purification, Gram staining, spore staining, catalase, oxidase, motility test, and identification by means of automatic identification were performed. The results obtained are as follows total 364 selected strains were analyzed in this study. Depending upon the isolated source, the number of strains from conventional milk was found to be higher than ESL-milk. By means of grouping of total strains, Bacillus ssp. and Staphylococcus ssp. showed to be predominant. But most of strains were distributed with various groups except Lactobacillus ssp. When the isolates were compared with milk process methods, Enterococcus ssp. was detected much on market milk treated with LTLT pasteurization. Also, Pseudomonas ssp. was detected much on conventional milk treated with UHT pasteurization. By comparison with genus groups depending upon storage temperature of market milk, the higher milk storage temperature increased, the most frequency detected Bacillus ssp. increased. Also, Pseudomonas ssp. was detected most frequently at 10℃ storage condition. Generally this genus derived from post-contamination during milk processing and related to the quality of market milk during chilled system. In conclusion, it was shown that ESL system reduced post-contamination during milk process, following the improvement of product quality and life cycle during the distribution of market milk.
