Microfluidics-enabled molecular interrogation of mosquito bites

"Mosquito bites transmit a number of pathogens via salivary droplets deposited during blood-feeding, resulting in potentially fatal diseases. Little is known about the genomic content of these nanodroplets, including the transmission dynamics of live pathogens. Here we introduce Vectorchip, a low-cost, scalable microfluidic platform enabling...

Microfluidic analysis of peptides reveals a correlation between physio-chemical properties and biological activity

"Antimicrobial resistance challenges the ability of modern medicine to contain infections. Given the dire need for new antimicrobials, polypeptide antibiotics hold particular promise. These agents hit multiple targets in bacteria starting with their most exposed regions—their membranes. However, suitable approaches to quantify the efficacy of...
