New Invention: A Flashlight that kills Bacteria

Recently, scientists invented a “flashlight” that can kill bacteria by beaming plasma at it. Plasma is a gas that can be created by electrical discharges and previous studies show that it effectively kills bacteria and viruses on skin.

During the test runs, scientists from China and Australia created bacteria that are highly antibiotic and heat-resistant to see what the flashlight can do. Results showed that after the bacteria was exposed to the flashlight for 5 minutes; they notice that it was able to eradicate the bacteria, even at the deepest layer. The flashlight is battery powered and portable making it easier for emergency medical personnel in disaster zones.
