lyophilizing phage

Postby JWertz » Fri Jul 10, 2009 5:02 pm

I was wondering if anyone has a tested protocol for lyophilizing phage. I am about to start some experiments to determine what lyophilization methods work well for lytic phage, and I was hoping I could get some input from other researchers who have experimented with this.

Dear John,
have you been successful in lyophilizing the phages? Unfortunately i do not have the neccessary equipment for lyophilizsation, however this would be a wonderful method for a long time storage if the phages are still infectious after reactivation.
