The Automated Teller Machine (ATMs) is likely to be contaminated with various microorganisms due to their vast dermal contact by multiple users. The me tallic keypads of ATMs were examined to investigate their potentials as source of bacterial contaminati o and also the antibiogram of the isolated organis ms. The study lasted from August, 2012 to October, 2012 inv olving several procedures like culturing, identifyi ng the organisms using biochemical tests and Kirby Bauer d isc iffusion method… CONTINUE READING
