The bacteria detector consists of three functional blocks, the sample preparation block, the thermal cycler, and the optical detector. The team has developed a protocol to recover the bacteria from environmental water samples, a thermal cycler to run single-cell PCR reaction in droplets, and an optical setup to detect the number of bacteria in the original sample.
