Pathogen Concentration in Blood

Accurate diagnosis of bacterial infections require early stage detection, and sensitive techniques that facilitate detection of as little as 1 CFU/ml bacteria in blood and other body fluids. This project involved development of sensitive nucleic acid testing assays and intricate microfluidic devices to specifically filter out or concentrate pathogenic bacteria from blood in order to detect very low infectious amounts.
