Antimicrobial susceptibility assays in paper-based portable culture devices

Author affiliations

Abstract

To detect antibiotic-resistant bacteria in areas remote from microbiology laboratories, we designed portable culture devices performing an analogue of the Kirby–Bauer disk diffusion test inside patterned papers embedded in tape. We quantified the antibiotic susceptibility of several strains of Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium by measuring blue-colored zones of inhibited growth.
