Development of a microfluidics based methodfor qualitative and quantitative assessment of phages for phage therapy, a phage measurement device for you (PMD4U)

1. Validate

a microfluidic based method for quantifying phages as accurately or better than the golden standard method (double agar overlay), currently used for over 100years

2. Establish

proof of principle for ESKAPE pathogens

3. Optical imaging equipment and basic plan for software algorithm
