  • Patent number: 10273460
    Abstract: Methods of detecting target bacteria are provided. In some embodiments, the methods comprise exposing a sample to a phage capable of infecting target bacteria, said phage comprising a heterologous nucleic acid sequence encoding a marker. In some embodiments, the target bacteria comprise Listeria. In some embodiments, the target bacteria are all Listeria. Recombinant Listeria phage comprising a heterologous nucleic acid sequence encoding a marker are also provided as are useful combinations of such phage and articles of manufacture comprising such phage, among other things.

  • Publication number: 20180274004
    Abstract: Composition and methods for the detection of one or more target microbe(s) are provided. Compositions of the disclosure include at least one recombinant phage capable of infecting a target microbe, said phage comprising at least a capsid protein sequence, a ribosome binding site, and a codon-optimized marker. Compositions of the disclosure may further include an aqueous solution that enhances the ability to detect marker expression upon phage infection of the target microbe. In some embodiments the target microbe is Listeria.
