RiboPrinter® pulls Antarctica duty, helps find new antibiotic-resistant bacteria
Environmental stresses like cold weather are known to induce antibiotic resistance in bacteria, as the pathogens mutate to react to any and all things potentially harmful to them. Recently, a Czech Republic research team in Antarctica used the RiboPrinter® molecular characterization system to discover a new species of Staphylococcus, one which could protect itself against both cold and antibiotics.
