Researchers take aim at rapid detection of sepsis in neonates

“This research started when I was working as a postdoc at Notre Dame, where we were trying to develop a faster way of detecting viable bacteria for an environmental application,” Sengupta said. “Our original idea was that using electrical impedance measurements, we would be able to detect gas production by living bacteria. But a closer […]
