This Device By IIT Guwahati Will Enable Rapid Detection Of Bacteria

GUWAHATI: Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati researchers have developed a low-cost, hand-held device to detect bacteria. This research by IIT Guwahati will enable rapid detection of bacteria, which is important not only in healthcare, but also in anti-bioterrorism measures and environmental monitoring applications, said a statement from the Institute.

The research team led by Prof. Parameswar K. Iyer, Department of Chemistry, and Prof. Siddhartha S. Ghosh, Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering, IIT Guwahati, has developed this novel, low-cost, bio-compatible sensor that can detect bacteria almost instantaneously without the need for cell culture and microbiological assays, the statement said.

The Organic Field Effect Transistor (OFET)-based bacterial diagnostic device has been shown to have the ability to detect 103 cfu mL−1 of bacteria and distinguish between Gram positive and Gram negative types, it said.

Their work has been patented as well as published in the July 2019 issue of the reputed peer-reviewed Journal of Materials Chemistry A of the Royal Society of Chemistry.(UPDATED ON AUGUST 6TH, 2019)
