The development of a biosensor for the detection of pathogenic bacteria in water

Abstract:

Pathogenic bacteria are causative agents of epidemics and deaths worldwide; water is a vector for the transport of bacteria and their consequent consumption by humans. The accepted "gold standard" for assessing bacterial concentrations in water is by traditional plate counts. However, this globally accepted technique takes longer than 24 hours. An alternative method to rapidly detect and to continuously assess bacterial concentration is required. A biosensor that provides near real-time in...
