Abstract

A new methodology for detecting the microbiological state of a wound dressing in terms of its colonization with pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus or Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been developed. Here we report how stabilized lipid vesicles containing self-quenched carboxyfluorescein dye are sensitive to lysis only by toxins/virulence factors from P. aeruginosa and S. aureus but not by a non-toxic Escherichia coli species. The development of the stabilized vesicles is discussed and their response to detergent (triton), bacterial toxin (α-hemolysin) and lipases (phospholipase A2). Finally, fabrics with stabilized vesicles attached via plasma deposited maleic anhydride coupling are shown visibly responding to S. aureus (MSSA 476) and P. aeruginosa (PAO1) but not E. coli DH5α in a prototype dressing.
