Biosensor for Organic and Inorganic Arsenicals – IP 1212

Current chemical tests and Biosensors detect only inorganicarsenic and total organic arsenicals.The last assay is lab based costly, can be easily contaminated withinterfering elements, low precision, poor reproducibility, and requiresskillful operators. Researchers at FIU have developed a novel method to detectthe presence of organic arsenicals by using a whole cell bacterial biosensorthat proposed a rapid, cost effective, and high-throughput method. Thefluorescent and intensity of the reaction allows for accurate analysis of thetesting results. This method can create a significant economic impact in themarket field as there is no known commercial test kit in detecting organicarsenicals.
