Rapid Screening and Identification of Living Pathogenic Organisms via Optimized Bioorthogonal Non-canonical Amino Acid Tagging
August 03, 2017, via Cell Chemical Biology
We’ve all heard about foodborne illnesses caused by E. coli and Listeria sp. Old methods for food surveillance may require several days to identify contamination, but new research provides a quick bio-orthogonal method for fluorescent labeling of bacteria. Imaging was performed in part using a Nikon Ti inverted microscope.
