Bio hit on the mall

The Washington Post writes about a bioterror sensor that went off on the Mall over the weekend during a recent protest. From what I recall, it seems this naturally occuring element was kicked up (maybe) by the people stomping on the ground (which is a bit odd, since there weren’t that many people compared to a real protest). But it just shows the need for the project I was helping my friends with at Institute for Applied Science. Bio-detection is an inexact science, at present, because it take so much time to get the results. Hopefully the new tools the Institute is developing will end these problems.]]>
