Abstract

Analytical microbiology is emerging as a very novel and important application for μTAS systems [1], and cost-effective miniaturized antibiotic resistance testing devices are now critically needed to monitor the global spread of antimicrobial resistance. For the first time, we present a simple "Lab-ona-comb" method for performing thousands of antibiotic sensitivity tests using microfluidic devices formed from low cost melt-extruded, fluoropolymer microcapillary film (MCF) [2-4].
