New microsystems detect, treat bacterial biofilms that cause post-operative infections

Flexible impedance sensor

New microsystems detect, treat bacterial biofilms—the source of many post-operative infections; latest device can sense and treat biofilm inside urinary catheters.

A long-term, interdisciplinary research collaboration at the University of Maryland’s A. James Clark School of Engineering has made significant progress in detecting and treating bacterial biofilms by developing new chemical compounds, materials, and microsystems that can fight these sources of post-operative infections.
