If you give Cliff a whiff he sniffs out Cdiff in a jiff

OK, this is one of the more interesting “microbiology of the built environment” stories I have seen in a while: Cliff the beagle sniffs out dangerous infections in hospitals | SmartPlanet.

A new paper in BMJ reports on training and testing of dogs to detect Clostridium difficile infections in hospitals.

There is even a video included in the paper of Cliff at work

Way to go Cliff.

Hat tip to Paula Olsiewski for pointing this out.
