Electric Probiotic

We demonstrate for the first time that bacteria in the human skin can generate electricity naturally as part of their metabolism. We define those electrogenic bacteria are “Skin Electric Bacteria”.Human skin can create a closed circuit that allows bacteria to generate a current.


Skin bacteria create electrical power by metabolizing the carbohydrates such as glucose in the skin.The Skin Electric Bacteria can be used 1) as biomarkers for diagnosis of human disease; 2) as Fuel Cells to eco-friendly generate higher electricity; 3) for designing wearable Devices, and 4) for creating next generation cosmetics for various skin cares.
