Microbial separation from a complex matrix by a hand-held microfluidic device

Author affiliations

Abstract

Through a simple chemical activation of biomolecules present in the outer structures of microbial cells, microorganisms can be rapidly isolated on gold-coated surfaces in a microfluidic device with over 99% capture efficiency. Bacterial and fungal cells can be selectively captured, concentrated and retrieved for further analysis.
