A Microsensor Based Instrument to Detect Antibiotic Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus

The scope of the project is to demonstrate the Proof of Concept that, using Piezoresistive Microcantilever based sensors and High Sensitivity Instrumentation, one can determine if the analyte sample contains antibiotic resistant Staphylococcus aureus. The final outcome is a BioFunctionalized Piezoresistor Microcanitlever 8 UltraSensitive Instrumentation based platform technology that enables detection of S. aureus within 1 to 2 hours. The innovation offers unique benefits like rapid and accurate detection of Antibiotic Resistant S. aureus.
