Described herein are systems and methods which utilize an array of wells to isolate pathogens and nucleic acid detection techniques to accurately and rapidly detect pathogens in fluid samples, even in very low concentrations, including from solid or semi-solid samples that have been fluidized. The provided systems and methods dry the fluid sample to deposit a fraction of the total volume in a number of wells and perform nucleic acid detection on individual wells to detect even individual pathogens and provide a quantitative analysis of the amount of pathogen within the sample. Also provided are methods and systems for precise delivery of dried materials, including biomolecules that are enzymes of use in the process, to microwells.
