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