Researchers from the SNI network have shown that nanomechanical sensors are ideally suited to quickly and reliably detect even a few bacterial germs in the blood. The interdisciplinary team describes in the scientific journal Biosensors that the method can be used to diagnose sepsis at an early stage – which gives more time for successful treatment.
