Listeria Monocytogenes

In 2018, one of the world’s worst outbreaks of listeriosis occurred in South Africa where a contaminated food processing plant resulted in over 1000 cases and over 200 deaths.

 

Listeria is quite a tough bug and is able to withstand environmental stresses that would usually be too much for most other bacteria.

Jack and his team are attempting to create a rapid test to quickly identify the type of Listeria monocytogenes present and whether or not it is virulent.
