Want to see an E coli bacteria?

Have you ever wondered just how small an E. coli bacteria is? We made this video to show E. coli growing as a biofilm on the surface of one grain of sand. E. coli bacteria like to live in the gut of warm blooded humans and animals are often associated with...

Research Stay at St. Petersburg University

During October and November 2019 the MIRACHL team memeber Tina Martin have done laboratory measurements at different kind of samples at the State University St. Petersburg. The reason for that was the direct comparison of Induced Polarisation (IP) measurements in...
