In this study, a pair of specific primers based on invA of Salmonella was designed and used in asymmetric polymerase chain reaction (aPCR) to produce a long target single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) that was captured by biotin-probe labeled magnetic beads (MBs) forming the MBs-ssDNA. The target ssDNA triggered HCR amplification with the two carboxyfluorescein (FAM) labeled DNA hairpin reporter probes (H1-FAM, H2-FAM) that enabled the measurements of the fluorescence intensities from the resulting ssDNA∼(H1-FAM ∼H2-FAM)n. The Fe3O4 nanoparticles were used to isolate the target ssDNA which hybridized with the reporter probe...
