MSU onderzoek gericht op voorkomen van infecties

31 maart 2017

Professors Tamara Bush and Laura Bix, along with a team of research students, are working to improve upon a commonly used type of pouch packaging, which is opened by pulling two sides apart. The team is also looking at how opening techniques can be improved to reduce contamination.
In their research, three sets of eight packages are opened by health care professionals and students with training and practical experience. The back of their gloved hands are coated in Glitterbug lotion, which glows under a black light. The outside of the packages are also coated with the lotion. Cameras capture the movements of their hands as they open each package (MI Blues Perspectives, 23 februari 2017).
