Development of a bacterial biosensor for arsenite detection

In order to provide an alternative measurement tool for arsenic contamination, we are developing a sensor that uses agarose beads containing a genetically engineered Escherichia coli strain producing a fluorescent signal in response to arsenite. Beads with cells are incorporated into a microfluidic system where they can be exposed to aqueous samples containing arsenic.
