Rapid and reliable detection of bloodstream infections would gain a lot from improved and straightforward isolation of highly purified bacteria from whole blood. Here, we report a microfluidics-based sample preparation strategy to continuously isolate microorganisms from whole blood for downstream analysis. The continuous-flow method takes advantage of the fact that bacteria cells have rigid cell wall enables selective and complete blood cell lysis while ~ 100% of bacteria are readily recovered. The method as a sample preparation unit offers opportunities to develop molecular based POC for sepsis diagnostics.
