Natural bacteriophages prove to be a unique solution, where increased safety does not come at the expense of product characteristics.
Bacteriophages are highly effective bacteria killers.
Although Stocher and Berg (8) demonstrate the feasibility of using lambda bacteriophage as an exogenously added assay control, a strong concern remains to be addressed before this technology will be widely accepted.
