Laser direct-write patterned paper-based devices for detection of bacterial pathogens

Laser direct-write patterned paper-based devices for detection of bacterial pathogens
World Health Organization has identified antimicrobial resistance as one of the most serious global threat that require urgent actions. Therefore, we report on the fabrication of novel paper-based culture devices that allow prompt detection of bacterial pathogens and their antimicrobial resistance at the point-of-care. These unique devices were fabricated using a laser direct-write technique that relies on light-induced polymerization. Multiple well-like structures, laser-patterned in the paper-devices, and impregnated with agar (containing different antibiotics in various doses) allowed the selective growth/inhibition and thus detection/susceptibility-testing of E.coli/Pa (primary causes of urinary and upper respiratory tract infections) via a simple visually observable colour-change.

Abstract

World Health Organization has identified antimicrobial resistance as one of the most serious global threat that require urgent actions. Therefore, we report on the fabrication of novel paper-based culture devices that allow prompt detection of bacterial pathogens and their antimicrobial resistance at the point-of-care. These unique devices were fabricated using a laser direct-write technique that relies on light-induced polymerization. Multiple well-like structures, laser-patterned in the paper-devices, and impregnated with agar (containing different antibiotics in various doses) allowed the selective growth/inhibition and thus detection/susceptibility-testing of E.coli/Pa (primary causes of urinary and upper respiratory tract infections) via a simple visually observable colour-change.
