Abstract The probability of accidental or intentional addition of another species of meat in meat products is high. Meat is expensive and in the context of food waste, it is reasonable to reduce loss of this precious material during the production. However, the line between fraud and waste reduction is thin. Minor variations, e.g., up to 1% of unexpected meat content, may be...

We applied urease-induced silver metallization on the surface of gold nanorods (AuNR) to improve colorimetric ELISA for the rapid and sensitive detection of Salmonella enterica Choleraesuis. To this end, we introduced a biotin-streptavidin system as a bridge to determine the correlation between urease and S. enterica Choleraesuis concentrations. The captured urease can catalyze the hydrolysis of...
