Cronin Group develop affordable robotic 3D-printed antibiotic testing devices
Researchers in the Cronin group have demonstrated the development of a cheap 3D-printed device for quickly testing which drugs are most effective at treating a specific bacterial infection. The system is portable and can be used by untrained personnel in hospitals, in the offices of general practitioners, at home, or in the field. It is hoped that devices such as this could be valuable weapons in the war against multidrug-resistant “super bugs”.
