Smart Bandage for Bacterial Infection Diagnosis and Therapeutics

At a Glance

​Researchers at Colorado State University have developed an “all-in-one” smart wound dressing that can offer real-time diagnosis of bacterial infection and deliver on-demand treatment simultaneously, resulting in faster wound healing and fighting against antibiotic-resistance.  The nanofiber wound dressing contains chimeric bacteriophage/antimicrobial peptide enzymes in addition to enzymes that can degrade bacterial biofilms.  These antibacterial/antibiofilm enzymes can be incorporated into the fiber through various manufacture techniques – including nanoparticles, micelles, or spinning of the fibers.
