What Lights Up Fireflies Can Also Keep Water Safe

The same chemical reaction that lights up fireflies on a warm summer night can also reveal microorganisms in water. Fireflies glow when adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecules react with the compound luciferin and the bioluminescent enzyme luciferase. LuminUltra’s 2nd Generation ATP testing solutions take that same chemical reaction and use it to show how many microbes… Read More

Easier ID Amps Up Potential for Power-Generating Bacteria

A new process for identifying bacteria that can produce electricity has been created by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Certain types of bacteria living in oxygen-deprived environments like lake bottoms and deep mines have developed a unique type of breathing. It involves excreting and pumping out electrons. This makes them capable of… Read More
