We had a live webchat at 9pm on Monday 3rd April looking back at the Hydroxyl Apatite project. Main findings Sophia What do we think we've learned from the experiments then? TBH, I feel like I know less about HA and nappies now than I thought I did before! Iona We found HA again on … Continue reading HA experiments: What did we learn?
This is a summary of the experiments we've been doing. We'll get the results of most of them on Saturday (18th Feb) at the results event in Cardiff. Making hydroxyl apatite (HA) in the lab The people in Cardiff (Cardiff Catalysis Institute, our partners in this project) have been trying to make HA on pieces … Continue reading Apatite for Destruction experiment summary
In this live chat we spoke to Elaine Berry and Greg Siragusa about their work using hydroxl apatite to concentrate bacteria. Elaine is a Research Microbiologist at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center. Greg is a Senior Principal Scientist at Eurofins Microbiology Laboratories. In 1997 they wrote a paper about using hydroxyl apatite to concentrate … Continue reading How bacteria and HA interact: A Live chat with Elaine Berry and Greg Siragusa

So far it's mainly been looking stuff up on the internet, digging around, and talking through what we can do and what our priorities are. To give you a bit of a flavour, here are the bare bones of the facts … Continue reading Apatite for Destruction – the hypotheses so far
