  • Publication number: 20050074834
    Abstract: Living cells can be used to identify or quantify bioactive conditions, including without limitation, chemicals, biological pathogens, and environmental conditions, such as pH, in samples based on changes in, for example, cell color, morphology and/or physiology. Such changes can be directly detected or detected with the aid of instrumentation. One embodiment of the method comprises exposing a system to a bioactive condition, such as a chemical agent, a biological pathogen, an environmental condition, such as pH, etc., and combinations of such conditions. The system then exhibits a response to the bioactive condition. The response of the system, or a portion thereof, to the bioactive condition is then represented, such as by digital images. The method then involves attempting to classify a scenario by database comparison. Classification can be in terms of numeric or non-numerical classifiers. Typically, the system comprises living cells.
