One of the most prevalent pathogens that cause foodborne outbreaks is the Bacillus cereus (B. cereus) group species (spp.) generally found in different types of food. Recently many researchers are focusing towards the progress of rapid methods to detect foodborne pathogens. Every year many innovative methodologies for bacterial detection are being developed… (More)
In recent years, there has been numerous research papers reported on the use of DNA biosensors for the detection of foodborne pathogens. However, none of the papers to date reflect the detection of foodborne pathogens directly in food using a handheld DNA biosensor.
Bacillus cereus (B. cereus) is a bacterial pathogen, which is more commonly found in milk and milk products and it is of particular concern to the infant formula industry. However, it can also be found in turkey, beef, rice, mashed potatoes and vegetable sprouts and causes diarrhoeal and emetic type of food poisoning. Therefore, real-time detection of B.… (More)
