New generation of low-cost Lateral Flow Assays (LFAs) coupled with paper-based electrical gas sensors: An application study for the rapid determination of Salmonella in food

Project description

A rapid test for Salmonella detection

Salmonella is a pathogenic bacterium responsible for food-related illness. Conventionally, Salmonella detection can take up to five days through a laborious lab-based procedure. NELLAFLOW is an EU-funded project that addresses a major issue in the food industry associated with Salmonella infection. Researchers propose to develop a lateral flow assay for the fast diagnosis of Salmonella at the point of need. To address the quantitation limitations of existing assays, they will incorporate a novel detector that allows Salmonella quantitation suitable for on-site monitoring. Importantly, the NELLAFLOW test is cost-effective, stable at room temperature and can produce accurate and fast results.
