Cells that are in a VBNC state cannot be detected by standard culture techniques.
Still, many controversies have arisen regarding the possibility of reversing bacteria from the VBNC state to the culturable state through a process called resuscitation (24).
Antimic[R] biocide provide an advantage by not promoting the VBNC state in the tested bacteria and removing the tested bacteria successfully.

This observation reinforces the previous findings that cells under these environment stresses may have entered VBNC state.
Their apparent persisting presence through fermentation and repeated detection in this and similar studies, however, suggests that they might warrant further study as to what sort of metabolic state they are in--live, dead or VBNC. If they are not merely dead and floating around, then there is a question of what role they might play in fermentation.
Most of the pathogens when are in VBNC state are not detec in conventional analytical methods (Rezzonico et al., 2003; Buck and Oliver, 2010) and can be easily overlooked in conventional techniques of analysis (Panutdaporn et al., 2006).
After the discovery of large nickel deposits in Labrador in 1993, the VBNC began separate IBA negotiations with the Labrador Inuit Association (LIA; the precursor of the Nunatsiavut Government) and the Innu Nation.
Currently, taking account of epidemiological enterococci have special place, In addition, many studies have been conducted on pathogenic microorganisms and Finding VBNC [possess growth potential, but it cannot be cultured] can be increased, At this time Bacterial cells retained their ability to grow, but they do not come up in the culture medium [3].
Intrinsic fluorescence spectroscopy has been shown to allow the detection and differentiation of viable but not culturable (VBNC) bacteria, thus overcoming the limitations of most actually used diagnostic techniques for VBNC gram negative bacteria [19].
cholerae died and did not enter the viable but nonculturable (VBNC) state after the loss of all CFU from the wild type [25].
