Alexis Sauer-Budge of Fraunhofer CMI and Boston University speaks to CHI on May 9, 2017. Dr. Sauer-Budge will be speaking during the Sample Preparation Track at the Biodefense World Summit, June 26-29, 2017, in Alexandria, VA. Traditionally, bacterial pathogens have been identified using culture-based methods that can take several days to obtain results. This can lead to physicians making treatment decisions based on an incomplete diagnosis. To decrease diagnosis time, we are developing novel devices and methods for isolating, concentrating, and detecting dilute viable pathogens and coupling these with novel downstream detection modalities.
