Lateral flow biosensor for DNA extraction-free detection of Salmonella based on aptamer mediated strand displacement amplification.

Convenient and sensitive point-of-care rapid diagnostic tests for food-borne pathogens have been a long-felt need of clinicians. Traditional approaches such as culture-based methods have good sensitivity and specificity, but they tend to be tedious and time-consuming. Herein we present a simple and sensitive aptamer based biosensor for rapid detection of… CONTINUE READING
