Summary:
The main goal of our laboratory recently is to develope antibacterial ecologically friendly technologies for biomedicine and food safety. Deep experience has been obtained in the investigation of the antimicrobial mechanism of action of high power pulsed light on food pathogens. One of the fields which was investigated during EC COST 924 project dealed with the investigation of antibacterial efficiency of high power pulsed light to decontaminate foods. In addition the nutritional and organoleptic properties of treated food were examinated. During EC FP6 STREP project (HighQRTE) we proposed pioniering approach to use photosensitization as non-thermal antibacterial technology for food safety. We found, that main pathogens and harmful bacteria, yeasts and microfungi, different spores and biofilms are susceptible to this treatment. Obtained data indicate, that photosensitization can be applied for decontamination of sprouts, ready to eat fruits and vegetables, ready to eat salads etc. Recently we are involved in the development of eatable biofilms, antibacterial surfaces based on nanotechnologies.
