Rapid detection of pathogenic bacteria
Project team Timothy Swager and Alexander Klibanov with Kent Harvey, Myles Herbert and Qifan Zhang
Fighting foodborne illnesses
Foodborne illnesses can lead to human sufferings, expensive medical treatments, lawsuits, government sanctions, product recalls, tarnished corporate reputations, and sometimes even result in death. This project will develop an inexpensive biosensor able to rapidly detect multiple types of pathogenic bacteria in food and water to prevent widespread infection.
This grant was funded by the J-WAFS Solution Program
The technology from this project was spun out into a startup company, Xibus Systems.
