Joint forces of scientists from the Biophysics Department, Institute of Fundamental Biology and Biotechnology, Siberian Federal University and Biophysics Institute, CSC SB RAS led to the discovery of really sensitive rapid test. This test could be used to assess the chemical safety of fruit and vegetables. Bioluminescent enzymes are used as a recognition tool behind that test as they proved to show maximum sensitivity in recognition of potentially toxic substances (even with the smallest concentration) in complex environments. You read more about it in the latest issue of “Doklady Biochemistry and Biophysics”. Furthermore, you go to our website website
and find more details about that research (in Russian).
