Bacteria light up in uv-light

Post by xEmineMx » Fri Apr 09, 2010 9:27 am

Hi. I'm about to make a project for my examns. I want to make a handlotion which reacts with the bacterias on the users hands. The bacterias should then light up, when they're affectet by ultraviolet-light (a dark place with a uv-lamp). Is this possible? And what do i have to add to the handlotion in order of getting this function?

Thank you! (:

That's kinda silly, your hand is always covered in bacteria. So it will always light up.
