Real-time optical detection of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus using lytic phage probes.

Abstract

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus)-specific bacteriophage was used as a probe for detection of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) in aqueous solution using a novel optical method. Biorecognition phage monolayers transferred to glass substrates using Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique were exposed individually to MRSA in solution at logarithmic… (More)
