Solution to control spread of E-coli

Abstract:
An Austin, TX, based company, Nano Science Diagnostics (NSD), has developed technology which can provide food distributors and public health authorities a potent tool to control the spread of e-coli as well as other nasty pathogens which could contaminate common food products. The technology was created during the course of research conducted by Dr. Su Dwarkanath for the United States Army which was looking for a way to detect very quickly anthrax in extremely low concentrations in public spaces such as a building. Anthrax, like E-coli, is also a bacterium; it is a far deadlier one. Bacteria are prevalent everywhere and, in extremely low concentrations, they pose no danger. But above a certain threshold, which can vary with each bacterium, a significant threat to health and even life can emerge.
