AIM: To develop antibody-aptamer functionalized fibre-optic biosensor for specific detection of Listeria monocytogenes from food products.
METHODS AND RESULTS: Aptamer, a single-stranded oligonucleotide ligand that displays affinity for the target molecule, was used in the assay to provide sensor specificity. Aptamer-A8, specific for internalin A, an invasive protein of L. monocytogenes, was used in the fibre-optic sensor together with antibody in a sandwich format for detection of L. monocytogenes from food. Biotinylated polyclonal anti-Listeria antibody, P66, was immobilized on streptavidin-coated optical waveguide surface for capturing bacteria, and Alexa Fluor 647-conjugated A8 was used as a reporter. The biosensor was able to selectively detect pathogenic Listeria in pure culture and in mixture with other bacteria at a concentration of approx. 10(3) CFU ml(-1). This sensor also successfully detected L. monocytogenes cells from artificially contaminated (initial inoculation of 10(2) CFU 25 g(-1) ) ready-to-eat meat products such as sliced beef, chicken and turkey after 18 h of enrichment.
CONCLUSION: Based on the data presented in this study, the antibody-aptamer functionalized fibre-optic biosensor could be used as a detection tool for sensitive and specific detection of L. monocytogenes from foods.
SIGNIFICANCE AND IMPACT OF THE STUDY: The study demonstrates feasibility and novel application of aptamer on fibre-optic biosensor platform for the sensitive detection of L. monocytogenes from food products.
