Test for the diagnosis of P. aeruginosa infections by detecting its communication molecules

The CSIC has developed an immunochemical technique for the diagnosis of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections. It detects the main signalling molecules that the bacteria use to communicate (Quorum Sensing). The test is very specific and has high sensitivity, as well as a high capacity for sample processing, which ensures diagnostic efficiency. It can also be easily implemented on point-of-care (PoC) devices.
