Rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) is urgently needed for treating infections with appropriate antibiotics and slowing down the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Here, a phenotypic platform that rapidly produces AST results by femtosecond stimulated Raman scattering imaging of deuterium oxide (D2O) metabolism is reported. Metabolic incorporation of D2O into biomass in a single bacterium and the metabolic response to antibiotics are probed in as short as 10 min after culture in 70% D2O medium, the fastest among current technologies. Single-cell metabolism inactivation concentration (SC-MIC) is obtained in less than 2.5 h from colony to results. The SC-MIC results of 37 sets of bacterial isolate samples, which include 8 major bacterial species and 14 different antibiotics often encountered in clinic, are validated by standard minimal inhibitory concentration blindly measured via broth microdilution. Toward clinical translation, stimulated Raman scattering imaging of D2O metabolic incorporation and SC-MIC determination after 1 h antibiotic treatment and 30 min mixture of D2O and antibiotics incubation of bacteria in urine or whole blood is demonstrated.

The point-of-care detection of pathogens in biological samples in resource-limited settings should be inexpensive, rapid, portable, simple and accurate. Here, we describe a custom-made fidget spinner that rapidly concentrates pathogens in 1-ml samples of undiluted urine by more than 100-fold for the on-device colorimetric detection of bacterial load and pathogen identification. In Tiruchirappalli, India, the device enabled the on-site detection of infection with the naked eye within 50 min in ur...

Human intestinal microbiota is important to host health and is associated with various diseases. It is a challenge to identify the functions and metabolic activity of microorganisms at the single-cell level in gut microbial community. In this study, we applied Raman microspectroscopy and deuterium isotope probing (Raman-DIP) to quantitatively measure the metabolic activities of intestinal bacteria from two individuals and analysed lipids and phenylalanine metabolic pathways of functional microor...

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major threat to human health worldwide, and the rapid detection and quantification of resistance, combined with antimicrobial stewardship, are key interventions to combat the spread and emergence of AMR. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) systems are the collective set of diagnostic processes that facilitate the phenotypic and genotypic assessment of AMR and antibiotic susceptibility. Over the past 30 years, only a few high-throughput AST methods have ...

All molecules consist of chemical bonds, and much can be learned from mapping the spatiotemporal dynamics of these bonds. Since its invention a decade ago, stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy has become a powerful modality for imaging chemical bonds with high sensitivity, resolution, speed and specificity. We introduce the fundamentals of SRS microscopy and review innovations in SRS microscopes and imaging probes. We highlight examples of exciting biological applications, and share our ...

Antibiotic susceptibility test (AST) is essential in clinical diagnosis of serious bacterial infection, such as sepsis, while it typically takes 2–5 days for sample culture, antibiotic treatment, and reading result. Detecting metabolites secreted from bacteria with surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) enables rapid determination of antibiotic susceptibility, reducing the AST time to 1–2 days. However, it still requires 1 day of culture time to obtain sufficient quantity of bacteria for sampl...

Summary Antibiotics target energy-consuming processes. As such, perturbations to bacterial metabolic homeostasis are significant consequences of treatment. Here, we describe three postulates that collectively define antibiotic efficacy in the context of bacterial metabolism: (1) antibiotics alter the metabolic state of bacteria, which contributes to the resulting death or stasis; (2) the metabolic state of bacteria influences their susceptibility to antibiotics; and (3) antibiotic efficacy can b...

The emergence of antibiotic resistance has prompted the development of rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) technologies that will enable evidence-based treatment and promote antimicrobial stewardship. To date, many rapid AST methods have been developed, but few are able to be performed on clinical samples directly. Here we developed a large volume light scattering microscopy technique that tracks phenotypic features of single bacterial cells directly in clinical urine samples withou...

Speeding up antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) is urgently needed in clincial settings to guide fast and tailored antibiotic prescription before treatment. It remains a big challenge to achieve a sample-to-AST answer within a half working day directly from a clinical sample. Here we develop single-cell Raman spectroscopy coupled with heavy water labeling (Raman-D2O) as a rapid activity-based AST approach directly applicable for clinical urine samples. By rapidly transferring (15 min) bacter...

ABSTRACT Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization–time of flight mass spectrometry is not widely used to identify bacteria directly from positive blood culture bottles (BCBs) because of overlong protocols. The objective of this work was to develop and evaluate a simple extraction protocol for reliable identification from BCBs. The 10-min protocol was applied over a 5-month period. Direct identifications on day 0 were compared with those obtained from colonies on day 1 [log(score) of ≥2]. We e...

Spectroscopic stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) imaging has become a useful tool finding a broad range of applications. Yet, wider adoption is hindered by the bulky and environmentally sensitive solid-state optical parametric oscillator (OPO) in a current SRS microscope. Moreover, chemically informative multiwindow SRS imaging across C-H, C-D, and fingerprint Raman regions is challenging due to the slow wavelength tuning speed of the solid-state OPO. In this work, we present a multiwindow SRS im...

We present multi-color imaging by stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) enabled by an ultrafast fiber-based light source with integrated amplitude modulation and frame-to-frame wavelength tuning. With a relative intensity noise level of -153.7 dBc/Hz at 20.25 MHz the light source is well suited for SRS imaging and outperforms other fiber-based light source concepts for SRS imaging. The light source is tunable in under 5 ms per arbitrary wavelength step between 700 cm−1 and 3200 cm−1, which allows fo...

Abstract null null The biodistribution and pharmacokinetics of drugs are vital to the mechanistic understanding of their efficacy. Measuring antimicrobial drug efficacy has been challenging as plasma drug concentration is used as a surrogate for tissue drug concentration, yet typically does not reflect that at the intended site(s) of action. Utilizing an image-guided approach, it is feasible to accurately quantify the biodistribution and pharmacokinetics within the desired site(s) of action. We ...

Traditional in vitro anticancer drug sensitivity testing at the population level suffers from lengthy procedures and high false positive rates. To overcome these defects, we built a confocal Raman microscopy sensing system and proposed a single-cell approach via Raman-deuterium isotope probing (Raman-DIP) as a rapid and reliable in vitro drug efficacy evaluation method. Raman-DIP detected the incorporation of deuterium into the cell, which correlated with the metabolic activity of the cell. The ...

One of the biggest challenges in microbiome research in environmental and medical samples is to better understand functional properties of microbial community members at a single cell level. Single cell isotope probing has become a key tool for this purpose, but the currently applied detection methods for measuring isotope incorporation into single cells do not allow high-throughput analyses. Here, we report on the development of an imaging-based approach termed stimulated Raman scattering - two...

Abstract Methods for rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) are urgently needed to address the emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance. Here, we report a new method based on stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy, which measures both the metabolic activity and the morphological deformation of bacteria to determine the antimicrobial susceptibility of β-lactam antibiotics rapidly. In this approach, we quantify single bacteria's metabolic activity by the carbon-deuterium (C...
