NSF International Scientists Announce Discovery of New Bacterium, Same Family as E. coli and Klebsiella Pneumonia
Date:11/13/2013

entific leadership and technical expertise and is an important reminder of the unknown potential pathogens lurking in microbial hot spots in our homes and why proper cleaning is essential,” said Dr. Donofrio.

NSF scientists sought assistance from Accugenix, Inc., who placed the bacterium in the genus Klebsiella using its proprietary gene sequencing methods and database. Accugenix, a leading provider of contract microbial identification services, specializes in bacterial and fungal identification and strain typing of environmental isolates.

“The NSF Applied Research Center team of scientists, technical experts and public health professionals as well as Accugenix all played a role in discovering Klebsiella michiganensis. Our goal is to educate the public about this new bacterium and provide solutions to further protect public health,” Dr. Donofrio added.

NSF scientists also are working with industry and academia to develop and test new disinfection methods for household and commercial application, including ozone, nano-antimicrobials and ultraviolet light treatments. These methods may help reduce or eradicate pathogens from hard surfaces (such as toothbrush holders) and from foods that can hold elevated levels of microbes, such as lettuce and strawberries.

NSF has conducted other public health studies with researchers from Harvard University and the University of Michigan regarding bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalate testing as well as with a major faucet manufacturer seeking to validate an ozone treatment technology.
