Paper Abstract

Smiths Detection is developing sensors and integrated instruments for rapid detection and identification of airborne biological agents. A biosensor array has been developed that provides real-time detection and classification of microorganisms based on molecular recognition and fluorescence spectroscopy. This biosensor is being integrated with an identification instrument that is based on a novel approach for surface plasmon resonance and light scattering. This device can continuously monitor for up to 20 biological agents and provide identification in 15 minutes or less.
