P1.1.7 Fast detection of pathogenic bacteria by using different sensor techniques

K. Kleo, C. Nietzold, F. Lisdat & R. Grunow
Francisella tularensis are gram-negative bacteria capable of infecting mammals. This high pathogenic species is classified as a potential bioterroristic agent by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta / USA. Therefore, a renewed interest in studying F.tularensis bacteria can be observed. This is strongly focused on developments of fast, cheap, robust, sensitive and specific detection methods. With this work we want to present alternative sensor systems for these pathogenic bacteria. Here we demonstrate two...
