Eliminate hardened germs with just 1.5 volts of electricity

  • Arkansas: In search of new ways to kill germs (bacteria), experts have now discovered another technique: if only a few micro-amperes of electricity at just 1.5 volts, pass through the germicidal solution for only half an hour It tears down these germs and thus kills even the hardest germs.

  • It is a common fact that if electricity passes through the body of an animal, it can die. The death penalty from electric chairs and deaths from electric shocks are clear evidence of this. But if electricity is kept so weak that it is completely harmless to the human body, can it also kill germs?

  • To find the answer, University of Arkansas experts began experiments on germs in a petri dish. These included germs that have developed resistance to antibiotics and are causing serious health problems.

  • After experimenting with different amperes and voltages, they found that if only a few micro-amperes of electricity were passed through a solution containing these microbes for half an hour at 1.5 volts, the cell membranes of the microbes would rupture, disrupting the cellular material in them. And these germs are broken down into pieces.

  • This electricity is so low that humans do not even feel it, while on the other hand, using just a few battery cells, it is easy to kill germs all day long.

  • After finding the best amperes and voltages to kill germs in initial experiments, experts are now trying to somehow refine and refine the technique to invent electronic devices that are low cost as well as short. And which can be easily used for disinfection in hospitals and small clinics as well as in homes.

  • Details of this research have been published online in the recent issue of "Applied and Environmental Microbiology".
