Technique identifies electricity-producing bacteria

Added: 22.01.2019 0:21 | 4 views | 0 comments

Engineers have developed a microfluidic technique that can quickly process small samples of bacteria and gauge a specific property that's highly correlated with bacteria's ability to produce electricity. They say that this property, known as polarizability, can be used to assess a bacteria's electrochemical activity in a safer, more efficient manner compared to current techniques.

Secret to sepsis may lie in rare cell

Added: 21.01.2019 23:18 | 18 views | 0 comments

Scientists reveal how a rare group of white blood cells called basophils play an important role in the immune response to a bacterial infection, preventing the development of sepsis. Researchers say their findings could lead to better ways to prevent the dangerous immune response that strikes more than 30 million people worldwide every year.
