EbbaBiolight-like Molecule for detection and quantification of bacteria

EbbaBiolight-like Molecule for detection and quantification of bacteria
Why rapid testing for Staphylococci is important Fast and reliable testing for pathogenic bacteria like Stapylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is highly desirable in the clinic as it can cause deep-seated infections such as osteomyelitis and endocarditis and is the major cause for hospital acquired infections of surgical wounds or indwelling...

EbbaBiolight-like Molecule detects biomarker for recurrent infection

EbbaBiolight-like Molecule detects biomarker for recurrent infection
Bacteria such as Escherichia coli (E. coli) are known to hide during an infection by encasing themselves in extracellular matrix containing amyloid proteins and cellulose. When they grow like this, clusters of bacteria are called biofilm and they are hard to detect and partly resistant to antibiotics. The same bacteria...

EbbaBiolight-like molecules reveals Salmonella biofilm secrets

EbbaBiolight-like molecules reveals Salmonella biofilm secrets
A 2016 study by the Swedish Medical Nanoscience Center at Karolinska Institutet used an EbbaBiolight-like Molecule to detect growth of Salmonella biofilm. This unique fluorescent tracer molecule is non-bactericidal and is therefore capable to dynamically follow the formation of curli fibres and cellulose in Salmonella enterica biofilm in real time....
