Fast size-determination of intact bacterial plasmids using nanofluidic channels

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We demonstrate how nanofluidic channels can be used as a tool to rapidly determine the number and sizes of plasmids in bacterial isolates. Each step can be automated at low cost, opening up opportunities for general use in microbiology labs.
