Control of Bacteriophages contamination

Bacteriophages : 

Bacteriophages From ‘bacteria' and Greek word phagein, 'to eat'),commonly used in its shortened form, phage. Estimated to be the most widely distributed and diverseentities in the biosphere. Phages are ubiquitous and can be found in all reservoirspopulated by bacterial hosts, e.g., soil or animal intestine.

How to control : 

How to control Generally, prevention strategies (like good laboratory/factory hygiene, sterilisation, decontamination and disinfection) are necessary to avoid bacteriophage contamination. The use of immunized or resistant bacterial strains against specific phages may be helpful, but properties of the genetically modified strains resistant to phages are often worse
