Abstract

Detection of microbial contamination in pharmaceuticals, food and cosmetics has been problematic for several decades. Numerous investigations highlight the urgency for novel methods; development of bioluminescent constructs allows real-time monitoring, rapid analysis and high-throughput screening of products. Microbial growth can be studied by measuring constitutive gene expression. The aim is to develop whole-cell microbial biosensors with Pseudomonas aeruginosa and quantify their growth rate by measuring constitutive expression of lux
