Unique Water Testing at Texas A&M University
http://engineering.tamu.edu/news/2014/05/05/fecal-matter-detection Safer water is the goal of Texas A&M researchers who've devised an unprecedented method of testing water for waste contamination. Vladislav Yakovlev, professor of biomedical engineering, and his team use laser light to find previously undetectable molecules associated with human and animal fecal matter in water. The technology has vast potential uses, including analysis of drinking water supplies in developing nations and followi
1 A revolution in schools The school we are in today will not be the school we are in tomorrow.
