Detection of Ostreopsis cf. ovata in environmental samples using an electrochemical DNA-based biosensor
(Science of the Total Environment, 2019-06-28)
Ostreopsis cf. ovata is a benthic microalga distributed in tropical and temperate regions worldwide which produces palytoxins (PlTXs). Herein, an electrochemical biosensor for the detection of this toxic microalga is ...
Detecting harmful algal blooms with isothermal molecular strategies
(Trends in Biotechnology, 2019-08-06)
The use of isothermal nucleic acid amplification strategies to detect harmful algal blooms (HABs) is in its infancy. We describe recent advances in these systems and highlight the challenges for the achievement of simple, ...
Magnetic beads in marine toxin detection: A review
Due to the expanding occurrence of marine toxins, and their potential impact on human health, there is an increased need for tools for their rapid and efficient detection. We give an overview of the use of magnetic beads ...
