Bacteriophages are viruses that parasitize bacteria. Harmless to humans, they are used in some packaging or dressings to inhibit bacterial proliferation. Researchers at IRIG, in collaboration with LETI/DTBS, have developed bio-active surfaces functionalized with bacteriophages, which detect pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus.
Bacteriophages are parasitic viruses that replicate exclusively in their host, with remarkable specificity. For almost a century, phage suspensions have been used therapeutically in certain Eastern European countries (Russia and Georgia) as an antibiotic treatment. Today, phages are incorporated into some food packaging or wound dressings to reduce the proliferation of bacteria such as
