Microfluidics-Based Lysis of Bacteria and Spores for Detection and Analysis
The disruption of the membrane/coat, or lysis, of bacteria and spores is often a critical step for analyzing the intracellular molecules such as proteins and nucleic acids. In this chapter, we review recent advances in the application of microfluidic devices for lysis of bacteria and spores. We divide existent devices and methods into five categories: mechanical, chemical, thermal, laser, and electrical. We also point out future directions in this field.
