Greg Strang, Director of the Food Safety Division of Intralytix, will present a talk entitled "Salmonella Biocontrol with Bacteriophage-based Technology," at the International Production & Processing Expo's Tech Talks in Atlanta, Georgia. Strang will speak Tuesday, January 30 at 3:00 - 3:20 pm in B8715.
"Our phage technology is based on naturally-occurring bacteriophages. It provides one of the safest and most environmentally-friendly and directly-targeted approaches for dealing with the pathogens that cause food-borne Illnesses," said Strang. "We are delighted to have an opportunity to talk about the science behind phages, "Nature's way" of controlling bacteria. Anyone attending IPPE with responsibility for producing safe foods should put this Tech Talk on their calendar."
