Biosensors will improve drinking water safety
Today’s Video of the Day from the National Science Foundation describes ongoing research that aims to improve the safety of drinking water.
A team of engineers and chemists at the University of Cincinnati is developing a fast-responding biosensor to detect highly harmful toxins in water.
The ultimate goal is to create a simple test that could instantly assess the safety of water in lakes and reservoirs. This could provide early contamination warning systems to protect public health.
