Article
Full-text available
The changing environment, climate, and the increasing manifestation of disasters, has generated an increased demand for accurate and timely weather information. This information is provided by the National meteorological authorities (NMAs) through different dissemination channels e.g., using radios, Televisions, emails among others. The use of ICTs...

Medicinal plants have been used as effective approaches to manage multidrug resistant pathogens, including infectious agents that cause nosocomial infections. This study aimed to investigate the antimicrobial potentials of ethanolic extracts of Ricinus comunis, Swietenia mahogani and Crusentia cujete against five multidrug resistant nosocomial path...

The poultry industry is important in boosting food sustainability of a population; however, the poultry environment and products are susceptible to pathogen contamination arising from poor farm hygienic conditions. This study investigated the prevalence, antimicrobial resistance and virulence profile of Proteus species from the environment and prod...

Antimicrobial agents play vital roles in decreasing human morbidity and mortality resulting from infectious diseases. However, the advent of resistance to many of these agents are significantly declining their efficacy. Most of the emerging and reemerging diseases are increasingly becoming resistant to a number of antibiotics that have previously b...

In this research work carried out at the Chemistry Laboratory of Federal University Lafia, silver was nanostructured using some alcoholic beverages obtained from Nigeria. There has been much interest as regards to readily available substrates or environmentally friendly materials that will give nano-silver apart from the known and established metho...
Article
Pineapple leaf was used in this study for the synthesis of silver nanoparticles based on the search for sustainable synthetic means. Indeed, this offered an economical and sustainable synthetic route relative to expensive and toxic chemical methods. The leaf extract was used and the corresponding nanoparticles obtained were subjected to UV–vis anal...

This experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of different levels of aflatoxin- contaminated feed (0% toxigenic maize, 25% toxigenic maize +75% good maize, 50% toxigenic maize+50%good maize, 75% toxigenic maize +25% good maize and 100% toxigenic maize) on growth, survival, haematology and histology of Clarias gariepinus juveniles. Ten Clari...

The aim of the work was to evaluate the potentials of fungi to produce pectinase and cellulase using orange peels as substrate. Fungi were isolated and identified from soil and decomposing orange peels. Fungal isolates were screened in modified Czapek-Dox media with carboxymethylcellulose and citrus pectin as the only carbon source for endoglucanas...

Question
At what chlorine dosage is bacteria resistant or tolerant to chlorine disinfection?
Question
I want to determine the IC50 of chlorine inhibition on bacterial cells.
Question
I carried out simulated experiment by treating a known volume of bacterial cell suspension with an initial concentration of chlorine and I want to determine the chlorine lethal dose (LD50). 
Question
I am working on chlorine disinfection of bacteria isolates and I want to determine the rate of kill of free chlorine on the isolates using the inactivation kinetics model.
I also need CT tables for E. coli, Vibrio, Salmonella and Enteorococci
Question
I have read articles providing information of preparation of NaOCl in Phosphate buffer while some have been in deionized water? what advantage does PBS have over deionized water in performing chlorine disinfection assay?
