Prof. Goluch gives talk at 3rd Annual Single Cell Analysis USA Congress

ChE Associate Professor Ed Goluch gave a talk at the Third Annual Single Cell Analysis USA Congress in Boston on "Isolating Bacterial Cells and Measuring Metabolites Using Sub-Microfluidic Systems," which discusses the unique challenges of bacterial cell analysis at the single cell level given their small size and motility. These challenges, he posits, must be addressed in order to investigate the chemical and physical micro-environments that individual cells respond to and create. Goluch will describe the micro/nano-fluidic devices that automatically trap and isolate exotic bacterial species at the single cell level and the integration of sensors in these devices to monitor the metabolic activity of the cells in their natural environment.
