We develop fast and reliable antibiotic susceptibility tests
By using nanomotion technology developed we can sense the activity of single bacteria and determine resistance profiles in hours
Our technology uses chips containing graphene membrane sensors that are sensitive enough to measure the nanomotion from single bacterial cells.
We measure the nanomotion in various conditions. The amplitude of nanomotion depends on whether the cells are alive.
Large arrays of sensors are read out in parallel with our platform for various antibiotics. This provides us with a rapid antibiotic screening result.
