Abstract:

The overall goal of this proposed project (through Phase III) is to develop a field-ready, easy to use Pathogen Analyzer to rapidly identify, quantify, and characterize viability of microbial pathogens in food and water at the required sensitivity (e.g. 1-1000 cfu/g). During the Phase I project, feasibility will be demonstrated by developing a novel probe used to detect 103-4 cfu/g of Salmonella spp. in cucumber within 4 hours. The overall goal of the Phase II project is to develop a prototype Pathogen Analyzer to rapidly identify, quantify, and characterize viability of priority pathogens in a variety of foods and water in 3 to 4 hours at the required sensitivity.
