I was looking at these videos on youtube where they show how to sample bacteria from phones or other sources. here’s an example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siHopHBdW2c
I was wondering if any of you have been doing any sampling and growing of bacteria from the body in a self-organised bioLab and what kind of safety measures did you take.
I talked with a microbiologist (with no background in DIY practices) and she told me it’s pretty dangerous even if you keep the petri dish sealed and she would not recommend it as you don’t know what you are growing. Maybe here there are different opinions or examples to share.
thanks a lot in advance for any suggestion, documentation, comment, safety alert you can share!
