7 Ways of Using Tech in Microbiology


The science of health has a strong focus on improving conditions by providing safe access to basic systems, such as clean drinking water. The study of microbiology addresses invisible hazards in our environment.


What is microbiology?


Microbiology is the study of microbes such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa and algae. Because these are all invisible to the naked eye, they can impact the health and safety of people, pets and wild animals in a variety of dangerous ways.


7 ways that microbiology technology can improve wastewater treatment

 Keeping people safe from the microbiological risks of wastewater, technology can provide the following: 

  • Tracking capabilities to note outbreaks of infection or disease
  • Microculturing to allow fast identification of dangerous microbes
  •  Updates in mass spectometry
  • Improvements in traceable data tracking to successfully track infectious outbreaks of disease
  •  Information sharing among public health professionals across borders and language barriers
  • Source tracking to determine the origin of a possible pathogen and plan ahead for additional outbreaks     
  • Targeted wastewater treatment tools to filter and treat water known to carry pathogens hazardous to the most vulnerable       
  • The ability to rapidly treat an area impacted by a particular disease may be easier with better predictive data based on the conditions surrounding previous outbreaks.


What else to know about microbiological technology?


For most effective water and wastewater treatment, it is crucial to quickly grow specimens and create an effective regimen of antimicrobial treatment. It's also extremely important to note the conditions that sponsor a particular outbreak; rising temperatures and changing weather patterns will likely increase threats to those in the developing world.


Effective wastewater treatment can be tracked, defined, and treated with new technological tools. Preparing to protect the health of the most vulnerable will take both highly technical tools and on the ground sample gathering for rapid diagnoses.
