Technologies Developed

  • Standardized germ tube test for identification and confirmation of Candida albicans.
  • Standardized slide culture technique for identification of intact hyphae of different fungi.
  • Bacteriophage SA4 may be a potential therapeutic modality against Staphylococcus aureus associated with bovine mastitis
  • Phage induced endolysin may be better therapeutic agents as compared to whole phage against mastitogenic isolates of bovine origin.
