Production and validation of the use of gamma phage for identification of Bacillus anthracis , Journal of Clinical Microbiology


Gamma phage specifically lyses vegetative cells of Bacillus anthracis and serves as part of the basis for identification of isolates from agar cultures. We report our study to standardize gamma phage production and preparation and to validate the assay for routine use. Unstable phage preparations were largely reduced through propagation of phage on blood… (More)
