Abstract

A recent publication has reported the fabrication of a new microbial culture device containing an array of unprecedented density - a million growth chambers. This micro-Petri chip should impact on various fields, including biotechnology, ecology, food microbiology and drug development, by enabling high-throughput screens and therefore the detection of rare phenotypes within a large population of microorganisms.
