Research Idea - Micro

Amanda and I are thinking about testing our stethoscope idea, from our policy paper. We would actually go out in public healthcare settings, to see what kinds of bacteria are growing on commonly used stethoscopes. We would print the stethoscope on TSA agar, EMB agar, and MSA agar. We would also collect gram stains and some other testing for each stethoscope. In lab, we would be running different cleaning solutions to see their effectiveness in eliminating the kinds of bacterial most often found on stethoscopes and then test the best one on stethoscopes in the 'real' world.
