Spectroscopic platform for the characterization of bacterial blood stream infections

On demand | Presented live 9 April 2024

Abstract

Diagnostic Raman spectroscopy offers a rapid approach for pathogen detection and phenotypic antimicrobial susceptibility testing. Following isolation, two common bloodstream infection bacteria, Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus, were treated with appropriate antibiotic concentrations and analyzed using On-Chip Raman spectroscopy. Using photonic data analysis, the spectral signals are translated into antibiograms.
