Nano-Biofilm Microarray for Antifungal Drug Discovery
A robot places 1,200 individual dots of a microbe culture—each less than 100 microliters in volume, which is thousands of times smaller than the cultures generally grown in today’s labs—onto a “microarray” that can be studied under a single microscope.
Growth time is hoped to be 6 hours rather than 24 and it introduces the possibility of massively parallel testing of an antibiotic or other microorganism stymying compound
