We are not alone

This may seem like a line from a Spielberg movie, but after you will see this video you will understand why I have suddenly acquired microbiophobia.

One can do another video on normal and pathogenic flora specifically in different parts of our body (ie, upper respiratory/lower respiratory, etc). I am sure mess will get messier.

Related to this, EBCRC is developing rapid in-field diagnostic devices that will detect the presence of pathogenic organisms or chemical contamination in water in minutes.

The simple-to-use system will provide results directly to portable devices via simple electronic readouts, laptops and PDAs. The system will be based on proprietary technology, which integrates sample preparation and analysis and will be applicable for the detection of a broad range of organisms for example common water borne contaminants such as faecal coliforms, E. coli, Legionella, Cryptosporidium and Giardia. The system is highly adaptable to food, environmental and point of care applications.
