  1. New Method Detects E. Coli in WaterA research team from the Univ. of Alberta has made a public health breakthrough by developing a device that detects E. coli bacteria in water much faster than previous methods. Mechanical engineering professor Sushanta Mitra’s team developed a sensor capable of detecting the potentially deadly bacteria in minutes — clearly improving on existing technology, which takes 24 to 48 hours to do the same job.The team hopes to tie the new test to cellphone technology to alert health workers and members of the public that a water source is contaminated. The team is working with an Indian partner, Tata Consultancy Services, to make the device capable of setting off an alarm. The idea is that when the new sensors detect E. coli, text message alerts in the local language would be sent to public health workers and people who rely on wells for drinking water.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2013/09/new-method-detects-e-coli-water
