Did you know some bacteria are resistant to different antibiotics? It scares me how much time doctors can need to find a treatment that works.
But what if there's a quicker way? Biophysicists in Switzerland have used a tiny object called a cantilever to listen to bacteria's movements. They can quickly detect when bacteria are dead in the presence of different antibiotics.
The method they've devised could save doctors and patients some crucial time. I always thought physics and biology were a great mix!
