Continuing our blog series of microbial top facts, today we feature Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa), a bacterium cultured frequently at our laboratory. It was discovered in 1882 by Carle Gessard through an experiment that identified this microbe by its water-soluble pigments that turned a blue-green when exposed to ultra-violet light.

With a type of the bacteria used in our laboratory for testing, we wanted to shine a light on Shigella in our microbial top facts blog series. The genus is divided in to four serogroups with multiple serotypes all of which vary significantly in genetic structure, the latter being one of the bacteria that can be tested for at our laboratory.

This year’s British Science Week focuses on theme “Innovating for the future”, celebrating the diverse world of science, technology, engineering and maths. Our scientists at BioLabtests took a closer look at existing research into bacteria that can harness the ability to produce electrical energy, the so called Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) Technology.
