Electrochemical genosensor for the direct detection of tailed PCR amplicons incorporating ferrocene labelled dATP
(Biosensors and Bioelectronics, 2019-03-30)
An electrochemical genosensor for the detection and quantification of Karlodinium armiger is presented. The genosensor exploits tailed primers and ferrocene labelled dATP analogue to produce PCR products that can be directly ...
Colorimetric DNA-based assay for the specific detection and quantification of Ostreopsis cf. ovata and Ostreopsis cf. siamensis in the marine environment
(Harmful Algae, 2019-03-16)
Ostreopsis is a toxic benthic dinoflagellate largely distributed worldwide in tropical and temperate areas. In the Mediterranean Sea, periodic summer blooms have been reported and have become a serious concern due to their ...
Detection of isothermally amplified ostreid herpesvirus 1 DNA in Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) using a miniaturised electrochemical biosensor
Given the threat that ostreid herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1) poses to shellfish aquaculture, the need for rapid, user-friendly and cost-effective methods to detect this marine pathogen and minimise its impact is evident. In this ...
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, ...
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 ...
