Consumption of ground beef has been implicated in the majority of outbreaks of disease from Escherichia coli O157:H7. There is a great need for rapid, sensitive, and specific microbial detection and isolation methods for the detection and recovery of pathogens such as E. coli O157:H7. Evanescent wave, fiber optic biosensors are an innovative, cutting‐edge technology with the potential to meet such a need. Food pathogens such as E. coli O157:H7 can be detected in minutes using the biosensor assay rather than d…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
