Culture-free bacterial analysis in less than 15min
What is Bacram?
CEA-Leti introduces BACRAM, the first compact and culture-free technology that identifies microorganisms in less than 15 min. BACRAM leverages:
BACRAM can be used for:
BACRAM offers many new features, including:
This technology is already available for pathogen threat detection in the context of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) risk. CEA-Leti is currently working on further developments for new applications in human medicine, industrial process monitoring and Raman label-based techniques. BACRAM may also be leveraged as a part of a global analytical chain, including sample collection, preparation and analysis.
