A group of students, also known as the Golden Pandas are an FLL Robotics Team from Westfield, IN who have developed a special interest in helping to fight C. diff. infections
The team attended the 2019 – 7th Annual International C. diff. Conference & Health EXPO hosted in St. Louis, MO and were inspired and impacted by all that they learned.
To help the team learn more about a C. diff. infection ~ we are asking patients, C. diff. Survivors, and their families to take a minute and participate in their unique survey. Your answers will make a difference for others afflicted by this life-threatening infection:
The Sporalizer (spore visualizer) is a system that uses specially formulated wipes that will react with C. diff spores, causing them to glow so that hospital cleaning crews can then effectively clean them. The team is hopeful that being able to see germs is the next step in the fight against infections.
