The development of a rapid, sensitive and inexpensive screening method for bacterial
detection is complicated by the numerous strains of bacteria that can contaminate platelets and the time required for some strains to proliferate to the point where they can be detected.
Research reviewed by the Harvard team suggests that bacterial
pathogens can survive in salt water, especially in waters with low salt concentrations (such as those found in estuaries) or high nitrogen loads.
Microban is registered by the EPA as inhibiting bacterial
