Highly sensitive, antibiotic effectiveness identification
- Resistant and susceptible bacteria strains separated in less than 60 minutes
- Super-epoxy coated glass slides for bacteria attachment
- Mechanical (liquid flow pressure) and chemical (lysostaphin) stresses imposed on bacteria
- Time-lapse dead-cell fluorescence measured in the presence and absence of antibiotics
- Sensitivity less than 104 CFU
