To mark British Science Week, we thought we would give you an insight into the key aspect of our day-to-day testing work. Here at BioLabTests, we work primarily with bacteria, yeasts and fungi. No matter which test we do, there will be a point at which we try and grow microorganisms.

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.

When perusing the calendar of national and global awareness days, there was one we simply couldn’t ignore: National Wine Day. To mark the occasion, our BioLabTests scientists looked at the science behind one of our favourite alcoholic beverages (note: no alcohol was consumed during this research).
