Adaptive Focused Acoustics Processing to Aid Recovery of Fungi from CF Patient Sputum Samples
Background: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that afflicts over 70,000 people worldwide. It is characterized by viscous mucus that accumulates in the lungs creating challenges for microbiology labs processing sputa toisolates lower growing fungal species. Our laboratory attempted to liquefy and homogenize mucoid sputum samples by exposure to Adaptive Focused Acoustics™ (AFA) in order to increase recovery of fungal pathogens.
