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 properties facilitate analyte separation, fluorescence enabled spectroscopic detection, and phages (chosen for the specific task) provide affinity to target bacteria with great selectivity. The method is cheap, easy, and accessible even in nonbiological laboratories.
