The lab talk

What do microbes eat? How long do they live? The lab technician is at home in a world that remains invisible to most people and he or she can take you there through his or her eyes.

The lab talk on living without air

To us breathing is like, well, breathing! But to most life on earth oxygen is not a necessity. Your intestines are, for example, for the most part anoxic. That means that 99% of the hundred thousand billion microbes that inhabit your intestinal tract are anaerobic. And there are even species that can live both with and without oxygen. Want to know how? Micropia’s lab technicians will show you.
