I'm working with E. coli and P1 Phage. I'm wondering if there is some chemical agent that will kill or disable P1 but leave E. coli untouched? It is not enough to just prevent infection. It must destroy the Phage.

  • $\begingroup$ No such chemical exists. Otherwise we would use it whenever we have a phage breakout in labs across the world. $\endgroup$ – Jeppe Nielsen Jul 18 '17 at 0:06
