Portable device can prevent MRSA outbreaks in hospitals

Students at Maastricht University have developed a device that can detect the presence of certain bacteria. This device may help to prevent bacterial outbreaks in the future. The presence of bacteria in hospitals can have serious and potentially fatal consequences for sick and elderly patients. The recently developed device is a quick, easy and affordable way to identify bacteria before an outbreak occurs.
