Novel Foam Collector for Bioreactors
TS-039273 — A foam collector to be used with bioreactors that would target and remove secondary metabolites produced and held within foam that is a product of the chemical reactions conducted.
Certain chemical reactions conducted in bioreactors, like aerobic fermentation, can produce a persistent foam that fills the headspace of the reactor vessels in which the reaction is taking place. This foam can be removed by introducing surface agents, but this is extremely undesirable as these ag…

Nonthermal inactivation of microorganisms using combination of shear and electric fields
TS-037864 — A method to inactivate microorganisms in a fluid without degrading certain properties, by using both mechanical shearing and electric fields.
The US FDA requires all manufactures to subject juice products to a 5-log reduction in the number of the most resistant pathogens. Currently, the most widely used method to inactivate pathogenic bacteria from foods and biological fluids involves the application of heat. However, the food industry …

Food-Safe, Naturally Produced Antimicrobials
TS-015129 — A new strain of Paenibacillus polymyxa, producing a stable extra-cellular metabolite, paenibacillin, that has strong antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive bacteria
The emergence of bacterial antibiotic resistance has mobilized the search for new potent antimicrobial agents. Although much of the resistance was observed in hospital environments and related nosocomial infections, there is increasing evidence that resistant food-borne pathogens evolved due to an…

Paenibacterin: A Broad Spectrum Antimicrobial
TS-014990 — Paenibacterin is a new broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent produced by Paenibacillus thiaminolyticus OSY-SE
Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria mutate or acquire antibiotic resistant genes from another bacterium. Once this change occurs, the bacteria prevent the antibiotic from controlling or killing a bacterial growth (APUA). This results in the growth and proliferation of bacteria with a strong…
