O mém projektu

The aim of the proposed interdisciplinary project is to develop a functional biosensor-based method for the rapid and reliable detection of Staphylococcus aureus. New approach should be suitable for practical use in the diagnostics and food industry. Modified bacteriophages and their proteins will be used as a biological component of the SPR sensor, a chip layer that is responsible for a specific interaction with the selected organism. Novel chips with ultra-low fouling surfaces will be used for detection of bacteria in complex biological media.
