The Search Begins

Thank you to our Citizen Scientists who have sent back their 01 samples! We are now analysing them to find that illusive polystyrene degrading bacteria. Currently we have a nice collection of cultures growing and within the next few days we will be searching these colonies.

Mohammed, Luke and Anthony putting the samples into agar.
If you have a 01 sample in your garden at home, please send it for analysis in as it is still very valuable. Don't forget to sign the health & safety form before sending it back to us.
