Abstract

Here, we describe a simple mix-and-read method for the detection of specific bacterial strains that uses a DNAzyme and a molecular beacon to generate a signal. We have greatly improved upon the previously described DNAzyme-based bacteria detection method by eliminating a tedious preparation step while maintaining detection sensitivity.
