NPY Meet the Scientist Day at MOSI

Pathologists from across Greater Manchester descended on the Museum of Science and Industry on the 23rd June for Diagnosis Manchester.

Members of the public were able to diagnose gruesome bacterial infections through a microscope, diabetes using blood and urine testing and Down's syndrome by pairing chromosomes.  Felt tip chromatography helped to explain drug testing at the Olympics. Visitors were also able to learn about organs in the body and find out about allergy testing. Encouraged by a typically damp Manchester day, approximately 350 people participated in the event, leaving with a better understanding of the science behind the diagnosis.
