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
