Title: Centrifugal sedimentation immunoassays for multiplexed detection of enteric bacteria in ground water

Abstract

Water-born pathogens pose significant threat to the global population and early detection plays an important role both in making drinking water safe, as well as in diagnostics and treatment of water-borne diseases. We present an innovative centrifugal microfluidic platform (SpinDx) for detection of bacterial pathogens using bead-based immunoassays. Our approach is based on binding of pathogens to antibody-functionalized capture particles followed by sedimentation of the particles through a density-media in a microfluidic disk and quantification by fluorescence microscopy. Our platform is fast (20 min), sensitive (10 3 CFU/mL), requires minimal sample preparation, and can detect multiple pathogens simultaneously with sensitivity similar to that required by the EPA. We demonstrate detection of a panel of enteric bacteria (Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium, Shigella, Listeria, and Campylobacter) at concentrations as low as 10 3 CFU/mL or 30 bacteria per reaction.
