AIM The efficacy of disinfection of contact lenses is difficult to determine. We have monitored microbial contamination on surfaces and in fluids by intrinsic fluorescence of microbes and distinguished their metabolic states (viable cells, nonviable cells, and endospores). This approach is sensitive (10 cells), requires no added reagents or sample contact… CONTINUE READING
