An Escherichia coli trap in human serum albumin microtubes

Author affiliations

Abstract

We describe the template synthesis of human serum albumin microtubes (MTs) and highlight their Escherichia coli (E. coli) trapping capability with extremely high efficiency. The E. coli was loaded into the one-dimensional pore space interior of the tubule. Similar MTs including an Fe3O4 layer also captured E. coli and were manipulated by exposure to a magnetic field.
