Project - M31 Rejection Countermeasures
Well, I'm seriously considering finally getting around to doing this project. I'm not sure whether or not SFM has the capabilities to do the analysis for this, not have I developed a proper protocol, but I think that it might be fruitful to collect samples of the microbes contaminating rejected magnet pockets, and seeing what sort of countermeasures we can devise. Perhaps by swabbing the magnet just prior to implantation, swabbing the implant site(or some comparable alternative), and periodically (not sure whether testing every day, every 2 days, or each time bandages are changed and antibiotics are reapplied would be better) swabbing the area around the implant scab/sutures.
It'd be best if I could find a local facility that would do the analysis for me, so I'll have to do some looking. Assuming I do find one before I get all of the supplies together to do my own implant (unless SFM or some other organization decides to do this analysis), I'll incorporate whatever study we devise here into my aftercare.
