Single Pathogen Detection with the Naked Eye
University of Minnesota, MN, United States
A test kit based on a novel signal amplification method allows for detection of extremely low concentrations of pathogens such as bacteria in food or bioterrorism agents.
Primary Application Area: Foods & Agriculture
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Unlike most methods of pathogen detection, this technology is a cost-effective, equipment free assay that enables visual detection of very low concentrations of molecules in a wide range of applications. It allows sensitive bioassays to be run outside a lab.
