Title Germination-Lysis for Wide-Area Decontamination of Bacillus anthracis Spores.
Publication Date Nov 2011
Media Count 20p
Personal Author C. Campbell E. Raber F. Bourguet P. Jackson S. Kane
Abstract This presentation covered the use of a Germination-Lysis approach to decontamination of Bacillus anthracis spores, based on the fact that germinated spores are more susceptible to simple disinfection methods such as UV and desiccation. The presentation covered challenges to wide-area spore decontamination, challenges to germination-lysis decontamination, proof of concept, project focus, experimental approach, and the relative cost.
