Artificial implants and biomaterials lack the natural defense system of our body and, thus, have to be protected from bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation. In addition to the increasing number of implanted objects, the resistance of bacteria is also an important problem. Silver ions are well-known for their antimicrobial properties, yet not a lot is known about their mode of action. Silver is...

Advances in biological tracer techniques for hydrology and hydrogeology using bacteriophages : Optimization of the methods and investigation of the behavior of bacterial viruses in surface waters and in porous and fractured aquifers = Utilisation de bactériophages comme traceurs en hydrologie et en hydrogéologie

Rossi, Pierre ; Aragno, Michel (Dir.) ; Muller, Imre (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel : 1994 ; 1570.

This work was undertaken in the Laboratoire de Microbiologie of the University of Neuchâtel, in close collaboration with the Center of Hydrogeology (CHYN). This multi-disciplinary research project was instigated because of the growing need both for environmentally harmless hydrogeological investigation tools, and for new tracers that can be used in multitracing experiments. This work treats of...
