McMaster researchers develop transparent patch to detect pathogens like E. coli in packaged foods

Researchers at McMaster University have developed a transparent test patch for food packaging that detects the presence of potentially deadly bacteria like E. coli, with the aim of telling consumers and the grocery industry whether a product is safe to eat. Read more.

Billions of tiny soldiers:’ Researchers harness bacteria-eating viruses to create a powerful new weapon against contamination and infection

Researchers at McMaster University have created a powerful new weapon against bacterial contamination and infection. They have developed a way to coax bacteriophages — harmless viruses that eat bacteria — into linking together and forming microscopic beads. Those beads can safely be applied to food and other materials to rid them of harmful pathogens such as E. coli

DidarLab researcher creates device to replicate conditions in blood vessels after grafts

In recent years, DidarLab collaborated with the Thrombosis and Atherosclerosis Research Institute (TaARI) to create a novel and highly promising platform to improve the success of vascular grafts. This revolutionary idea was an engineered non-stick surface combined with biological components that can repel all but a targeted group of cells — those that form the

Didar Lab inventors’ repellent wrap has been shown to shed all viruses and bacteria – moving towards scale-up production

The new wrap, designed to protect against contamination on high-touch surfaces such as door handles and railings, is now moving toward scaled-up production through FendX Technologies, Inc., which last year licensed the technology. The product works using a self-cleaning surface design microscopically “tuned” to shed everything that comes into contact with it, down to the

DidarLab Interview with BBC World Service – The smart packaging that knows if your food is safe to eat

If you have kept some food for a little while, you may not know whether or not is has gone off. Eating it could risk you getting ill, or throwing it away just adds to the food waste mountain. Researchers have come up with a potential solution. These are smart bio-markers on food packaging which
