On the 166th birthday of the scientist Hans Christiaan Gram, who created his own special identity in the field of microbiology, Google has named his homepage. Hans Christiaan Gram, appearing in Google Doodle, discovered the 'gram staining technique' and is one of the earliest scientists to work in this field. Village methods are used until eight decades after his death and his contribution to the world of microbiology is still remembered.
Born on September 13, 1853, Gramm completed his MD from the University of Copenhagen and then worked as a resident physician at the city's Municipal Hospital. He then traveled to Europe and gained expertise in bacteriology and pharmacology, working on many fields. Christiaan Gram retired in 1923 and died in 1938 at the age of 85.
What is Hans Christiaan Gram staining?
While working at the Berlin Laboratory of microbiologist Karl Friedlander, Gram developed a 'gram stain'. According to the Encyclop ब्रिटdia Britannic, gram stain is a scientific way of identifying and detecting a bacterium. The village stan method is named after its discoverer.
This is how the test happens
In the Gram stain method, the violet dye is applied to the spots of bacteria and then it is washed with an organic solvent iodine solution. Thick cell bacteria remain of purple color and are called gram-positive. At the same time, bacteria with weak and thin cells are washed away and the purple spots disappear, they are called gram-negative.
