Lighting Up Bacteria

Posted by evolvingwheel on March 12, 2007

Scientists from the University of Sheffield have designed an innovative sensor that helps to indicate presence of bacteria by giving out a fluorescent signal. The researchers will be able to detect early stage bacterial contamination by using a polymer that will give out visible signal in presence of the pathogen. The technology has serious implications in the healthcare industry, where it often takes more than days to culture bacteria. The new method appears to hold promise in delivering an easy, manageable, and fast way to detect bacteria in wounds. Read the detail [here].
