We are developing field-portable instruments and disposable fluid cartridges that enable the rapid and quantitative analysis of target bacteria or viruses in complex mixtures. Up to many milliliters of raw sample are processed automatically in a flow-through manner, and processing functions are sequentially effected. These include specimen dilution, coarse filtration, target microbe extraction/separation, microbe lysis with or without chemicals and/or heat, neutralization, DNA/RNA purification… CONTINUE READING
