Micro-array for the identification of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) seropathotypes associated with Hemorrhagic Colitis and Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome in humans.
A micro-array has been developed, based on the GeneDisc(R) array, for the genetic identification of 12 O-types and 7 H-types of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) including the mostExpand

Development of a method for the detection of verotoxin-producing Escherichia coli in food.
The growing recognition of the role of non-O157 verotoxigenic Escherichia coli (VTEC) in foodborne illness underscores the importance of developing methods to detect it in the food supply. WeExpand

Use of low dose e-beam irradiation to reduce E. coli O157:H7, non-O157 (VTEC) E. coli and Salmonella viability on meat surfaces.
This study determined the extent that irradiation of fresh beef surfaces with an absorbed dose of 1 kGy electron (e-) beam irradiation might reduce the viability of mixtures of O157 and non-O157Expand

Deterministic entanglement of two neutral atoms via Rydberg blockade
We demonstrate a neutral atom CNOT gate using Rydberg state mediated interactions. The gate is used to deterministically create entangled Bell states with a fidelity of F=0.71, without correcting forExpand
