Speedy Microarray For Harmful Bacteria
To prevent outbreaks of water- or food-borne illnesses, scientists need rapid, sensitive methods to detect pathogenic bacteria such as Escherichia coli, Salmonella enterica, and Campylobacter jejuni. Now researchers report a microarray assay that uses chemiluminescence to spot these three bad bugs (Anal. Chem., DOI: 10.1021/ac2002214).
Currently, scientists look for harmful . . .
