Less Intrusive Method for Inoculating NutsMarch 7th, 2013
To eliminate a hazard, it helps a lot to understand it. For example, post-harvest bacterial contamination of nuts can be a serious — if (happily!) uncommon — health hazard. To develop measures to combat that contamination, you first have to create the contamination in the lab. There are liquid-to-solid transfer mechanisms, but that then requires the nuts be dried post-inoculation, introducing other complications in the measurement. So a team led by University of California-Davis researchers developed a dry inoculation method. As with any method that requires the growth of cell cultures, the laboratory incubator features prominently.
