Use of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy for the differentiation of pathogens and viruses on substrates.

Abstract

In this work, the use of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) to differentiate live pathogens and killed viruses on substrates is investigated. Live pathogens B. anthracis Sterne strain and F. tularensis live vaccine strain were interrogated as lawn and colonies on agar; dilutions on agar; and dilutions on glass slides, and it was found possible to… (More)
