Of the more prominent challenges facing the construction industry are those related to deterioration of material and structures by actions of microorganisms. The process is loosely known as Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC), which belies an incredible range of processes occurring as a result of the growth of microorganism, principally bacteria, on our steel and concrete […]
Textiles are part of our everyday experience but little do we realize the amount of technology and application expertise that goes into providing their features and performance attributes, particularly formulating for the addition of antimicrobial performance.
Research into the microorganisms related to food born illness has taken a turn in the last few years. Vibrio vulnificus a formerly little known organism related to the bacteria causing cholera disease (Vibrio cholera) is now causing increasing concern associated with the consumption of raw or undercooked shellfish.
Dust Mites Love Fungi As a microbial enthusiast, the interaction between humans and our unseen environment is fascinating. As part of our profession we are regularly challenged with issues related to the generic categories of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. But on occasion other classes of organisms such as small insects become important. […]
