This photograph was captured during one of the steps in a new environmental surveillance technique, that is being piloted in other labs. It is established on a filtration-based method, used in the Western Pacific region. The benefits include not having to be incubated overnight in the cold, and that it uses three filters at one time, proving to be faster, and cheaper.
