Gold bio nanoconjugates for the rapid identification of microorganisms

The University of Bristol have developed a rapid, sensitive, and versatile bacterial detection platform using functionalised gold nanoparticles through a simple colourimetric shift from a minimal sample volume. This innovative technology has the potential for diverse applications in areas such as healthcare, food safety, agriculture, aquaculture, manufacturing and environmental monitoring.
