Bacteria

Bacillus subtilis

Bacillus subtilis is a ubiquitous naturally occurring saprophytic bacterium that is commonly recovered from soil, water, air, and decomposing plant material. B. subtilis bacteria produce a class of lipopeptide antibiotics.

Bacillus thuringensis

Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is a microbe naturally found in soil. It makes proteins that are toxic to immature insects (larvae). Bt has been registered for use in pesticides by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) since 1961.

Lactobacillus

Lactic Acid Bacteria or Lactobacillus are used as probiotic strains or microorganisms which are integrated into food for health benefit purposes.They are usually found in milk or yogurt. Also, LAB also exhibit some antimicrobial and anti-cancer properties.

Acetic Acid Bacteria

Acetic Acid Bacteria have the capability to oxidize carbohydrates and alcohols into aldehydes, ketones and organic acids. These oxidation products are used in a wide variety of industries including medicine.

Corynebacterium diptheriae

Diphtheria is an infection caused by the bacterium Corynebacterium diphtheriae. Diphtheria causes a thick covering in the back of the throat. It can lead to difficulty in breathing, heart failure, paralysis, and even death. Vaccines are recommended for infants, children, teens and adults to prevent diphtheria.

Diphtheria vaccine is made from inactivated Corynebacterium diphtheria in order to make a toxoid vaccine that will stimulate immune response but with no pathogenic hazard. In order to culture (bacteria) properly, pH, temperature, agitation and gas concentration must be monitored.

Bordotella pertussis

Pertussis, also known as "whooping cough", is a highly contagious respiratory disease. It is caused by the bacterium Bordetella pertussis.

Pertussis is known for uncontrollable, violent coughing which often makes it hard to breathe. After fits of many coughs, someone with pertussis often needs to take deep breaths which result in a "whooping" sound. Pertussis can affect people of all ages, but can be very serious, even deadly, for babies less than a year old.

The best way to protect against pertussis is by getting vaccinated.

Pertussis vaccine is made from inactivated Bordetella pertussis bacteria in order to make a toxoid vaccine that will stimulate immune response but with no pathogenic hazard. In order to culture (bacteria) properly, pH, temperature, agitation and gas concentration must be monitored.

Clostridium tetani

Tetanus is an infection caused by bacteria called Clostridium tetani. When the bacteria invade the body, they produce a poison (toxin) that causes painful muscle contractions. Another name for tetanus is "lockjaw" because it often causes a person's neck and jaw muscles to lock, making it hard to open the mouth or swallow. Vaccines are recommended for infants, children, teens, and adults to prevent tetanus.

Tetanus vaccine is made from inactivated Clostridium tetani bacteria in order to make a toxoid vaccine that will stimulate immune response but with no pathogenic hazard. In order to culture (bacteria) properly, pH, temperature, agitation and gas concentration must be monitored.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the most studied Rhamnolipid producer due to its potential applications in wide variety of industries. Rhamnolipid are used to produce products such as Rhamnolipid surfactant.

Vibrio cholerae

Cholera is an acute diarrheal infection caused by ingestion of food or water contaminated with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. Cholera remains a global threat to public health and an indicator of inequity and lack of social development. Researchers have estimated that every year, there are roughly 1.3 to 4.0 million cases, and 21 000 to 143,000 deaths worldwide due to cholera.

Cholera vaccine is made from inactivated Vibrio cholerae bacteria in order to make a toxoid vaccine that will stimulate immune response but with no pathogenic hazard. In order to culture (bacteria) properly, pH, temperature, agitation and gas concentration must be monitored.
