Capturing E coli for faster detection

Antibody-coated microscopic paramagnetic particles for the specific immunomagnetic separation of micro-organisms

Stopping E coli from developing in cattle

Scientists have identified a potential target in cattle that could be exploited to help prevent outbreaks of food-borne illnesses caused by a nasty strain of Escherichia coli.

Decreasing E. coli in cattle

Despite millions of dollars spent on food safety research over the last 10 years, ground beef recalls due to E. coli O157:H7 were higher in 2007 than in 2006.

Cranberry juice tannins can defeat E. coli bacteria

Agroup of tannins found primarily in cranberries can transform E. coli bacteria in ways that render them unable to initiate an infection offering the possibility that the cranberry may provide an alternative to antibiotics.

Cell disruption of Escherichia coli using high-pressure systems

Although some biological products are secreted from the cell or released during autolysis, the preparation of many others requires cell disruption to release intracellular material.
