Hi Chris, what do you think about the idea of using UV light radiation as a way to sterilize the armpit before performing a biome transplant, instead of just washing? Perhaps this would yield better results for your non-related transplant attempts.

Dear Scott, thank you for sharing. UV light is very effective against bacteria; in fact, we use it on an everyday basis in our laminar hood in the lab. But it also burns the skin and can cause skin melanoma… So, we should be careful with this. Cheers, Chris
