Texas Tech University researchers are looking at
a new process that will help keep the food supply safe.

 

MicroZap Technology


MicroZap was spun off from patented technology developed through cutting-edge food sterilization research at the International Center for Food Industry Excellence. Sen. Robert Duncan (R-Lubbock) joined Lt. Gov. Dewhurst for the announcement.

 

“Not only could this new technology lead to significant advances in food safety for everyone, but also this ETF grant hopefully will help MicroZap grow into a thriving bio-tech company that creates new jobs and economic development opportunities for Lubbock,” Dewhurst said.

 

MicroZap uses directional microwaves delivered at varying doses and intensities in order to target disease-causing microorganisms with great precision.

How MicroZap works in everyday life

 

MicroZap’s technology makes food safe by killing E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria. Adding MicroZap’s technology to a clothes dryer or washing machine kills MRSA on fabrics such as sheets, towels and scrubs.

 

Food borne illness has a dramatic impact in the United States and the world. In the US each year food borne illness causes:

 

76 million cases
325,000 hospitalizations
5,000 deaths and
Economic impact of $5 to $7 Billion

 

MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infections have grown dramatically in the US. In 2007 in the US MRSA causes:

 

880,000 infections
20,000 - 40,000 deaths and
Infections cost $8 Billion
