A lysozyme and magnetic bead based method of separating intact bacteria.

Abstract

As a response to environmental stress, bacterial cells can enter a physiological state called viable but noncultivable (VBNC). In this state, bacteria fail to grow on routine bacteriological media. Consequently, standard methods of contamination detection based on bacteria cultivation fail. Although they are not growing, the cells are still alive and are… (More)
