Detection of Food-Borne Pathogens
May 8, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
This work describes Dr. Mukundan’s team’s efforts to detect bacterial pathogens with sensitivity and specificity in complex samples such as beef. The use of unique, sensitive biosensor platforms and tailor made assays to target lipidic signatures in an aqueous background will be described specifically for shiga toxin carrying E.coli in the beef chain.
