To use a MS2 bacteriophage model to compare three hand-drying methods, paper towels (PT), a warm air dryer (WAD) and a jet air dryer (JAD), for their potential to disperse viruses and contaminate the immediate environment during use.
The purpose of the current work was to study the pattern and dynamics of biofilm formation in clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus and S. epidermidis in the presence of 10 antibiotics with different action mechanisms.
To investigate the antiviral efficacy of oregano oil and its primary active component, carvacrol, against the nonenveloped murine norovirus (MNV), a human norovirus surrogate.
To perform a systematic evaluation of the applicability, validity and reliability of the long PCR-RFLP of 16S-ITS-23S rRNA genes for bacterial genotyping using both sequences retrieved from public genome databases and the experimental data obtained on bacterial cultures.
The aim of the present study was to design and test a method allowing the detection and quantification of methanogenic consortia in organic-rich rocks to determine the potential of methane biotransformation.
To study the mechanism of bacterial inactivation by carvacrol and the influence of genetic and environmental factors in its antimicrobial activity.
To identify enterococci from the fermentation of milk for the production of nono, an African fermented dairy product, to determine the technological properties for suitability as starter cultures and safety as probiotics.
To calculate the shear stress needed to remove sessile Listeria monocytogenes cells from stainless steel (SS) and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) surfaces.
To prepare concentrated formulation of Trichoderma harzianum MTCC-3841 (NBRI-1055) with high colony forming units (CFU), long shelf life and efficient in root colonization by a simple scrapping method.
To isolate Bacillus anthracis from cattle carcass burial sites from high-risk districts in Zimbabwe.
