    • Factors affecting sedimentational separation of bacteria from blood 

      Pitt, William G.; Alizadeh, Mahsa; Blanco, Rae; Hunter, Alex K.; Bledsoe, Colin G.; McClellan, Daniel S.; Wood, Madison E.; Wood, Ryan L.; Ravsten, Tanner V.; Hickey, Caroline L.; Beard, William Cameron; Stepan, Jacob R.; Carter, Alexandra; Husseini, Ghaleb; Robison, Richard A.; Welling, Evelyn; Torgesen, Rebekah N.; Anderson, Clifton M. (American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), 2019)
      Rapid diagnosis of blood infections requires fast and efficient separation of bacteria from blood. We have developed spinning hollow disks that separate bacteria from blood cells via the differences in sedimentation ...
    • Rapid Separation of Bacteria from Blood - Review and Outlook 

      Pitt, William G.; Alizadeh, Mahsa; Husseini, Ghaleb; McClellan, Daniel S.; Buchanan, Clara M.; Bledsoe, Colin G.; Blanco, Rae; Melville, Madison; Hunter, Alex K.; Robison, Richard A.; Roeder, Beverly L. (American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), 2016)
      The high morbidity and mortality rate of bloodstream infections involving antibiotic‐resistant bacteria necessitate a rapid identification of the infectious organism and its resistance profile. Traditional methods based ...
    • Rapid separation of bacteria from blood – Chemical aspects 

      Alizadeh, Mahsa; Wood, Ryan L.; Buchanan, Clara M.; Bledsoe, Colin G.; Wood, Madison E.; McClellan, Daniel S.; Blanco, Rae; Ravsten, Tanner V.; Husseini, Ghaleb; Hickey, Caroline L.; Robison, Richard A.; Pitt, William G. (Elsevier, 2017)
      To rapidly diagnose infectious organisms causing blood sepsis, bacteria must be rapidly separated from blood, a very difficult process considering that concentrations of bacteria are many orders of magnitude lower than ...
