Suspended microchannel resonant (SMR) mass sensor

Vertical Tabs

We are utilizing high precision mass sensing technology based on the suspended microchannel resonator (SMR) to monitor the physical properties of individual bacteria in response to applied stresses. Our goals range from addressing important applications – such as developing a field-deployable approach for distinguishing between viable and viable but nonculturable bacteria – to pursuing fundamental questions such as how antimicrobial peptides alter the physical state of the cell.
