UTIs are a common occurrence in hospitalized patients with catheters, but they’re typically detected too late and can lead to sepsis. Currently, a diagnostic test can take hours to provide results. Researchers from Ireland and Germany have now created a “Lab-on-a-Disc” device that can separate and detect bacteria in tiny samples of urine. The device is a centrifuge that spins a few microliters of a urine sample.
