  10. SBIR Phase I: Nanoparticle Sensor for Detection of E. coli in Real-time and Real-world Conditions

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop a passive sensor for real-time detection of E. coli without concentration steps. It is based on the change in conductivity which would occur when the bacterium is captured by peptidoglycans specific to that strain which have been immobilized on two closely-separated gold electrodes. A unique aspect of this work is the use of glycoligands as the sensing elem ...
