Abstract
An evanescent wave fiber optic sensor for detection of E. coli outer membranes proteins (EcOMPs) is presented. The sensing probe is achieved by the functionalization of a Long Period Grating (LPG) inscribed in a single mode fiber (SMF28) with poly-L-lysine (PLL) resulting in a label-free configuration capable of specific recognition of EcOMPs in waters due to the resonance wavelength shift variation owing to refractive index changes of the medium (≈100 nm/RIU). The sensing head was characterized and tested against EcOMP and applied to spiked environmental water samples. The sensor displayed linear responses in the range of 1×10-10 M to 1×10-8 M EcOMP and is regenerated (under low pH conditions) and the deviation of the subsequent detection was less than 0.1 %.
