Clemson researchers are Developing a biological sensors to detect food that’s starting to spoil

Clemson University researchers are working to develop packages that would use communication between cells to detect food that’s beginning to spoil. Quorum sensing (cell to cell communications) uses signaling molecules called autoinducers. Dr. Kay Cooksey and Claudia Ionita are designing a sensor that would identify autoinducers present in packaged foods. Dr. Cooksey said, “The idea is to take what the microorganisms do naturally, put that with being able to sense that they are starting to create a food spoilage situation and build that into a sensor.” @ http://newsstand.clemson.edu/mediarelations/clemson-researchers-look-to-biological-sensors-to-detect-food-thats-starting-to-spoil/" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">http://newsstand.clemson.edu/mediarelations/clemson-researchers-look-to-biological-sensors-to-detect-food-thats-starting-to-spoil/
