Bacillus cereus is increasingly recognized as one of the major causes of food poisoning in the industrialized world. In this paper, we describe a sensitive double-antibody sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) that was developed for rapid detection of B. cereus in food to minimize the risk of contamination. The polyclonal antibody (pAb) and(More)
Many types of diagnostic technologies have been reported for DNA methylation, but they require a standard curve for quantification or only show moderate accuracy. Moreover, most technologies have difficulty providing information on the level of methylation at specific contiguous multi-sites, not to mention easy-to-use detection to eliminate labor-intensive(More)
To solve the requirement of on-site, rapid, and visual detection of copper (II) (Cu2+) in aqueous solution, a turn-off sensor for detecting copper (II) ion was developed based on Cu2+-dependent DNAzyme as the recognition element and hybridization chain reaction (HCR)-based horseradish peroxidase (HRP) concatemers as the signal amplifier and the signal(More)
Lipopolysaccharides (LPS), integral components of the outer membrane of all gram-negative bacteria, are closely associated with foodborne diseases such as fever, diarrhea and hypotension, and thus, the early and sensitive detection of LPS is necessary. In this study, an aptasensor assay based on hybridization chain reaction (HCR) was developed to detect(More)
For previously reported aptasensor, the sensitivity and selectivity of aptamers to targets were often suppressed due to the reporter label of single-stranded molecular beacon or hindrance of the duplex DNA strand displacement. To solve the affinity declining of aptamers showed in traditional way and realize on-site rapid detection of Lipopolysaccharides(More)
A two-way colorimetric biosensor based on unmodified gold nanoparticles (GNPs) and a switchable double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) concatemer have been demonstrated. Two hairpin probes (H1 and H2) were first designed that provided the fuels to assemble the dsDNA concatemers via hybridization chain reaction (HCR). A functional hairpin (FH) was rationally designed(More)
A colorimetric biosensor for DNA screening was designed based on the conformational changes of the horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-mimicking DNAzyme. The scheme of DNA biosensing was designed based on the base pairing of DNAzyme sequence to inhibit the formation of HRP-mimicking hemin/G-quadruplex structures in the process of amplification. DNA could be(More)
