Abstract

Luminescence-based bacterial biosensors (lux-marked Escherichia coli and lux Pseudomonas putida Fl) were used to identify constraints to bioremediation of BTEX contaminated land. The approach, involving sequential exposure of sensors to samples treated by a series of manipulations, was validated by correlating biosensor response with mineralisation of C-14-labelled toluene.
