Simple immuno-magnetic separation tandem fluorescent probes based on quantum dots-antibody (QDs-Ab) were developed to detect Salmonella with sensitivity of 500 cfu mL-1. With two monoclonal antibodies, which recognize different antigenic determinant on the surface of Salmonella, we prepared antibody-coated magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) and conjugates of(More)
A novel, rapid DNA detection method based on fluorescence quenching of quantum dots (QDs) by gold nanoparticles (GNPs) through polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was developed. In proof-of-concept experiments, the length of the amplicon DNA ranging from 152 to 1003 base pairs (bp) could be determined based on quenched fluorescence intensity with 136 bp as the(More)
