Overcoming molecular sample processing limitations ; New platform technologies, RNA and DNA extraction strategies and fibre-optic biosensors by Jean Downing Higgins( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigated the use of a commercially available fiber optic biosensor (Analyte 2000TM, Research International, Woodinville, WA) for near real-time detection of the pathogens E. coli O157:H7 and Salmonella typhimurium in wastewater. The minimum detectable number of pathogens was first measured in the relatively simple matrix of phosphate buffered saline, delivered in one-ml injections by syringe. False positive results were rare, even in the case of E. coli O124:H7, other E. coli strains and members of the Enterobacteriaceae. These results suggest that biosensors may be developed for use in real-time monitoring of specific analytes, such as pathogens, in wastewater treatment systems
