Sensitive, selective, rapid, and label-free detection of pathogenic bacteria with high generality is of great importance for clinical diagnosis, biosecurity, and public health. However, most traditional approaches, such as microbial cultures, are time-consuming and laborious. To circumvent these problems, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) appears to be a powerful technique to characterize bacteria at the single-cell level. Read More
