Initial discovery of this mutation was significantly delayed due to what is now believed to be interference and/or absorption of electrical signals that are otherwise relied upon to detect mutations.

As this serum began development while the "Electrically Charged" program was well underway, early progress was fast-paced.

Later refinement of the serum proved more time-consuming than hoped, as electrical interference made the necessary delicate calibrations difficult.
