Bacillus anthracis, the causative agent of anthrax, is considered as one of the most important pathogens in the list of bioterrorism threats. This paper describes the synthesis of electrically active magnetic (EAM) nanoparticles and their application in a direct-charge transfer biosensor for detecting B. anthracis Sterne endospores. These EAM nanoparticles were synthesized from aniline monomer made electrically active by acid doping and gamma iron (III) oxide nanoparticles resulting in… CONTINUE READING
