Germs …they can run but can't hide.
Cornell University scientists are developing a handheld sensor to quickly pinpoint poisonous germs in food and drinks.
The device attaches antibodies to the outside of microscopic fat bubbles on a test strip. A sample moving up the strip attaches to the antibodies and turns red if E. coli is present.
A negative sample would not change color.
The device will detect potentially lethal microbes in eight minutes.
