The response of a suite of lux marked bacterial biosensors to the BTEX compounds was studied. The suite of biosensors was applied to environmental groundwater samples taken from a site with a history of BTEX contamination. The biosensor suite produced a quantitative response to all of the BTEX compounds, which was measured by luminometry. Analysis of site groundwater samples indicated that the biosensor suite gave an indication of overall toxicity and the bioavailability of a specific group of compounds. These data could provide vital information to guide and monitor the continuing remediation strategy, as well as indicate a biologically relevant endpoint. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 8th International In Situ and On-Site Bioremediation Symposium (Baltimore, MD 6/6-9/2005).
