Rapidly Detecting Harmful Bacteria with Green Gold

Professor Abdennour Abbas and his research team have been conducting basic research on the interactions between gold nanoparticles and cell surfaces to create novel sensors. Differently shaped gold nanoparticles like the flat triangular gold (green solution on left) and spherical gold (red-pink solution on right) not only appear different, but can have very unique interactions with cells that can be exploited to create novel reactions that yield detectable signals like color changes or glowing reactions.
