Burkholderia pseudomallei, the bacterial agent of melioidosis, causes disease through inhalation of infectious particles, and is classified as a Tier 1 Select Agent. Optical diagnostic imaging has demonstrated that murine respiratory disease models are subject to significant upper respiratory tract (URT) colonization. Because human melioidosis is not(More)
Klebsiella pneumoniae is a bacterial pathogen of worldwide importance and a significant contributor to multiple disease presentations associated with both nosocomial and community acquired disease. ATCC 43816 is a well-studied K. pneumoniae strain which is capable of causing an acute respiratory disease in surrogate animal models. In this study, we(More)
Advanced deep reactive ion etching (ADRIE) is a new tool for the fabrication of bulk micromachined devices. Different sensors and actuators which use ADRIE alone or combined with other technologies such as surface micromachining of silicon are presented here. These examples demonstrate the potential and the design freedom of this tool, allowing a large(More)
