An der University of Surrey in Guildford, England haben sie mal Bakterien großgezogen, die sich so auf und in unseren Smartphones so finden. Na lecker. Aber vielleicht haben die Beamten, die hier massenhaft und ohne richterlichen Beschluss Telefone beschlagnahmt haben, da auch was von.
These shocking pictures show the hundreds of bacteria – some of which can cause skin infections – which can thrive in the crevices of your MOBILE phone.
The photos were taken by students at the University of Surrey during an experiment and made public for the first time today.
The young scientists put their phones in petri dishes containing agar, a nutrient rich substance which encourages bacterial growth, and monitored what happened over a period of three days.
They found that most of the bacteria was harmless, however they did discover some traces of staphylococcus aureus, which can cause skin infections.
Boffins suspect staphylococcus aureus may have ended up on the devices after someone had picked their nose – as it often originates from human nostrils.
