Lister supported Pasteurâ€™s idea in 1882 after using a carbolic spray in an operation. His inventions in antiseptic methods assisted in the transformation of surgical operations. It is during this period when antisepsis was sophisticated to asepsis that was attained through sterilization. Ernst von Bergmann emerged with surgical instruments sterilization in 1885 (Geison, 1995).
Not all the scientists could have emerged victoriously if they were in Louis Pasteurâ€™s shoes. There must have been some extraordinary qualities in Pasteur that could have enabled him to achieve his objective in managing to come up with means of preventing diseases. It is, therefore, necessary to consider some of the influential conditions and principles that could have led to Pasteurâ€™s achievement. Pasteurâ€™s individuality and temperament while in the lab could have possibly led to his success. The means through which Pasteur has to manage to remain in many peoples minds all over the world and also in some educational materials is explained considerate, sensitive, and kind but not obsequious.
