Detection of Signaling Molecules in a Biological Environment
This Patent focus on the detection of bacteria and other pathogens within the medical or agricultural areas. The detection uses a unique method of detecting in real-time, in situ (within the field or on a person), the Quorum Sensing signaling molecules rather than the bacteria itself. These signaling molecules are much smaller than the bacteria, diffuse much more readily within the environment and identify only live bacteria. This technology could also be useful for Quorum Quenching methods where rather than destroy the bacteria, just jam their communication network.
