NOVEL CONCEPTS IN SUPPORT OF CLINICAL MANAGEMENT OF AMR
An optofluidic microwell structure for the rapid determination of the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of antibiotics
Broth microdilution is the gold standard for the detection of antimicrobial resistance. The technique is however time consuming and requires a lot of hands-on time. ESR12 will develop an integrated low-cost, real-time polymer-based photonic lab on a chip (PhLoC) to continuously monitor cell cultures with the final aim to evaluate the minimum inhibitory concentration.
Using a combination of both biological and technical knowledge on the micro- and nanoscale to be used in practice. My ultimate goal is to be able to develop diagnostic tools that are applied in hospitals and/or primary care, up to point of care.
