Efficient identification of pathogenic bacteria is greatly concerned with microbial food safety and foodborne diseases diagnosis. Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) tags are among the cutting-edge tools for bioanalysis, but facing troubles in either SERS sensitivity, durability, interfering signals, or universal recognition agents for target bacteria. This work proposed a multivariate scheme enabled by polyphenolic chemistry for the green synthesis, facile stabilization (functionalization), protective encapsulation, and bio-affinitive design of metal-phenolic networks (MPNs)-encapsulated silver SERS nanotags ([email protected]@MPNs).
