dc.description.abstract We present a simple microfluidic system for rapid screening of Escherichia coli (E. coli) O157:H7 employing the specificity of immunomagnetic separation (IMS) via immiscible filtration assisted by surface tension (IFAST), and the sensitivity of the subsequent adenosine triphosphate (ATP) assay by the bioluminescence luciferin/luciferase reaction. The developed device was capable of detecting E. coli O157:H7 from just 6 colony forming units (CFU) in 1mL spiked buffer within 20min. When tested with wastewater discharged effluent samples, without pre-concentration, the device demonstrated the ability to detect 10(sup4) CFU per mL seeded; suggesting great potential for point-of-need microbiological water quality monitoring. en_US
