York researchers invent “sweet” solution to kill E. coli in drinking water. It is a novel paper-based water treatment technique, DipTreat, which uses glucose to fish E. coli from water, trap them within the porous paper matrix, and kill them using the antimicrobial properties of Moringa oleifera seed extract.
York researchers invent new way to measure how liquid spreads on surface. This is possible through new measurement technique of drop spreading in underwater system. It appeared as a cover article in Langmuir .
New innovation in water quality monitoring is the cover feature titled “A hydrogel based rapid test method for detection of Escherichia coli (E. coli) in contaminated water samples” in the current issue of Analyst.
