CONCLUSION: Mobile phones belonging to health care workers are frequently contaminated with pathogenic bacteria with the potential of transferring drug resistance to nosocomial pathogens. Studies investigating the relationship to surgical site infections need to be conducted. The concept of "mobile hygiene" involving the change of mobile covers, replacement of cracked screens or even wiping the phone with an alcohol swab could yield the cost-effective balance that contaminated cell phones deserve until they are established as a direct cause of surgical site infections.

ute;nik I, Armstrong DW Abstract Supercritical fluid chromatography is becoming more prevalent, particularly in industry. This is due to the inexpensive, and more importantly, environmentally benign carbon dioxide that is used as the major component of the mobile phase. Water is minimally miscible with carbon dioxide at temperatures and pressures commonly used in SFC. However, the introduction of a polar alcohol modifier component increases the solubility of water in carbon dioxide. Previously, the addition of small amounts of water in the mobile phase was shown to provide significant gains in efficiency in chiral...
