Microbiology data analysis to be completed soon

Following the collection of dust data samples from the 12 households participating in the study, the team has been analysing them used different microbiology analyses.

This will help determine if the bacterial strains being identified are of public health importance i.e. known to cause any disease and if these are resistant to one or more antibiotics. 

Then the team will assess the implications in the household (i.e. babies and toddlers, food safety, treatment/control options, etc…) and whether, in terms of cleaning, there are any particular cleaning processes (i.e. detergents) that can kill these?
