Detailed microbe database now online
Bioquell has developed a comprehensive and freely available online ‘bug’ database. The micro site features over 30 of the most common environmental contaminants and provides valuable insight into the world of bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
Each entry includes a high-resolution image and detailed information about the bug’s biology, allowing readers to understand key points about its microbiology. The symptoms/effects of the bugs are reviewed explaining its habitat, transmission and control. Finally, technical information is provided for each bug, which typically includes various references to other useful scientific papers/articles.
Commenting on this new online resource, Dr. Jon Otter, Head of Microbiology at Bioquell said, “Our advanced hydrogen peroxide vapor technology kills bugs that are often difficult to picture. This new section on our website provides an appreciation of some of the key microbes we are often asked to tackle, plus a few of the more obscure ones. By understanding a wide range of microbes, our teams can ensure the success of our hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) bio-decontamination technology in a wide variety of applications.”
