Our sensitivity instruments rarely ever go down, but when they do our lab uses Kirby-Bauer testing to perform antimicrobial susceptibility testing in our laboratory. This testing involves placing antibiotic-infused discs on a standardized inoculum of bacteria spread in a lawn onto a Mueller Hint... Read More
In 2011, the NIH Clinical Center had a cluster of infections of a pathogen that tops the CDC's list of urgent threats: antibiotic-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae. This bacteria, which can cause bloodstream and other infections, has recently developed resistance to the class of antibiotics kno... Read More
The picture was taken after my students at the Inter American University of Puerto Rico-San German, learned the technique of water filtration analysis of fecal coliforms in water. They filtrated a mL of groundwater from a nearby aquifer and transferred the filter to Endo agar plates. The pictur... Read More
At its annual assembly in Geneva last week, the World Health Organization approved a radical and far-reaching plan to slow the rapid, extensive spread of antibiotic resistance around the world.

Methylobacterium aquaticum strain NO00 (KR920749) grown over rice grain. It can produce phytohormones and other beneficial metabolites for the plant. M. aquaticum is a plant growth promoting (PGP) bacteria". Its pink-biofilm, can help with water-stress and protect the plant against pathogens. Read More
New research from Australian and Singaporean scientists has revealed how immune cell 'spies' are created, providing clues on how the immune system could be manipulated to better fight disease. Read More
