Biosensors based on whole-cell bioluminescence have the potential to become a cost-effective alternative to conventional detection methods upon validation of target selectivity and sensitivity. However, quantitative analysis of bioluminescence is greatly hindered due to lack of control over the total number of cells in a suspending culture. In this study, the effect of surface properties of genetically engineered luminous E. coli cells and fibrous matrices on the immobilization capacity and… CONTINUE READING
