Novel Molecular Method to Diagnose Main Causes of Digestive Infections

Tehran, Iran | Posted on July 14th, 2013

The method can be used in order to simply and rapidly diagnose and prevent the diseases in case of sudden outbreaks.

In this research, a novel molecular method based on nanobiotechnology was designed in order to quickly and simply detect microorganisms, specially salmonellosis pathogens and digestive infections. Diagnosis speed in this method is much faster than in similar methods, and the product is finally detected through the change in color without the need for any harmful device or chemicals. In addition, the novel method enjoys high sensitivity and desirable properties.

Among the results of the research, mention can be made of the application of nanoparticles in simple and cost-effective detection of microbes, obtaining technical knowledge for microbial diagnosis in a short period, molecular and color diagnosis of microorganisms based on nanoparticles (nanodiagnosis), compilation of a diagnosis method with unique properties and sensitivity, and applications in critical conditions (the outbreak of pathogens).

Results of the research have been published on 15 September 2013 in Biosensors and Bioelectronics, vol. 47. For more information about the details of the research, study the full paper on pages 231-236 on the same journal.
