Phage-based bioconjugates… on the cover!

Our recently published article was featured on the front cover of Bioconjugate Chemistry! This paper describes a new method for fast bacteria detection. Fluorescent-magnetic submicroparticles were conjugated with non-modified T4 bacteriophages. Prepared probes combined with widely used flow cytometry enabled fast and easy bacteria detection (in this case, Escherichia coli). Magnetic […]
