Portable Tool to Analyze Microbes

Science Innovations

Rutgers University Researchers have developed a device to analyse microbes in oceans and other aquatic environments to find out how healthy they are. It is a portable device used to assess microbes, screenfor antibiotic-resistant bacteria and analyze algae that live in coral reefs. The tool, developed initially to assess algae, can determine in the field or in laboratories how microbes and cells respond to environmental stresses, such as pollution and changes in temperature or water salinity.These microbes can't be seen iwth the naked eye. Mehdi Javanmard, Associate Professor said that the device may give clues on the impact of climate change on the health of microorganisms, such as algae that form harmful blooms, in the eco system.
