Beschreibungen

Bacteriophages: Practical Applications for Nature's Biocontrol' presents the latest information on uses in healthcare settings as well as animal husbandry, management and care of farm animals by using enhanced phages to replace antibiotics for growth promotion in animal feed or to prevent, control and treat disease in animals. The book will provide an overview of the function of phages and what researchers need to know, from phage hunting to laboratory design, management, production and application using different tools and methods. These key aspects will be discussed through a series of dedicated chapters, with topics covering auditing, validation, data analysis, microbial identification, culture media, and contamination control, etc.
Applications of phage biocontrol in aquatic habitats and on farms Practical aspects of phage biocontrol testing and applications Contamination control risks and remediation strategies, along with rapid microbiological detection methods Phage hunting, propagation and enhancing lytic activity to target the host cell Relevant phage biocontrol applications and quality control assessment Alternative applications for phage in wastewater and other water treatment, including control of harmful algal blooms Use as an environmental biocontrol in healthcare, crowded, sensitive or unsanitary environments Healthcare applications, obstacles and considerations Uses in a timed-release format for ingestion or injection
Professor Sabah A. A. Jassim: Adjunct Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Windsor, is CEO of Applied Bio Research Inc., Canada. His research and academic contributions span 29 years. Sabah was awarded his M. Phil and Ph.D. degrees from Nottingham University and Loughborough University respectively, both in the UK. He has worked as a faculty research fellow and an adjunct professor at Nottingham University, UK and University of Guelph in Canada, respectively, focussing in phage biotechnologies. He was also a visiting professor at Universiti Putra Malaysia supervising a research post doctoral team working on phage design technology. Sabah has also worked extensively in the private sector focussing on practical applications for his scientific research, especially relating to biota as well as bacteriophages and related topics.Mr. Richard G. Limoges: Currently a businessman, operating two successful small businesses in Windsor, Ontario where he met Sabah several years ago. Mr. Limoges now acts as Chief Administrative Officer of Applied Bio Research, Inc., a company dedicated to the commercialization of Dr. Jassim’s various innovative technologies.
