Rapid detection of single bacteria in unprocessed blood using Integrated Comprehensive Droplet Digital Detection

Abstract

Blood stream infection or sepsis is a major health problem worldwide, with extremely high mortality, which is partly due to the inability to rapidly detect and identify bacteria in the early stages of infection. Here we present a new technology termed 'Integrated Comprehensive Droplet Digital Detection' (IC 3D) that can selectively detect bacteria directly… (More)
