MicroZap - Process
MicroZap utilizes pulsed power of radio frequencies in the microwave spectrum. This unique process of pulsed power and multiple RF sources creates a targeted signal density to allow food to be pasteurized without damaging or changing the quality of the food.
This novel and unique approach is currently patent pending. Research and commercial testing are conducted in a BSL 2 lab space on the main campus of Texas Tech in the Experimental Sciences Building.
The unique MicroZap technology utilizes a combination of thermal and non-thermal effects to destroy bacteria at lower (colder) temperatures, thus creating “cold pasteurization” of fresh foods and eliminates deadly pathogens.
