Mohammad Ashraful Alam, a Bangladeshi descent in the United States of America invented a new ‘Electric sensor’ that can detect the living and the dead cells of bacteria within few minutes conquering the current challenge of science to detect Bacteria in hours.

This is the success story of another Bangladeshi, Mohammad Ashraful Alam (Bengali: মুহাম্মদ আশরাফুল আলম) in United States of America who invented a new ‘Electric sensor’. With his invention, living and the dead cells of bacteria can be detected within few minutes. As a result, the diagnosis of diseases will be more accurate than earlier. And protection of different types of dishes will be ensured.

Mr. Ashraful Alam teaches in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Puradu. He had studied in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology(BUET) in Bangladesh.

medicine. Usually it takes few hours to examine bacteria samples. So, this is quite difficult to detect the disease or starting the treatment of the patients. But the sensor he made with a PHD student, Aida Ebrahimi, would take few minutes to complete the whole process. The sensor can accurately detect the difference between living and dead bacteria cells.

The research paper of Ashraful Alam and Aida Ibrahim was published in the Journal, “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences”. The study is important that the sensor can detect the difference between the dead and the living bacteria cells within a short time. This will help realizing how the bacteria die. The treatment of a bacteria infected patient can be started quickly now and effective drugs also can be given to cure the patient soon.
