الملخصClostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a significant health problem worldwide. Control and prevention strategies of C. difficile horizontal transmission require assays with fast detection with high specificity and sensitivity. Conventional diagnostic methods are time consuming and costly for clinical field settings. This study aims to develop gold nanoparticles (AuNPs)-based assay for direct qualitative detection of the nucleic acid of C. difficile and its toxins. A colloidal solution of AuNPs with a diameter of 13±1 nm was prepared and characterized. The qualitative colorimetric AuNPs assay was developed for restricted genomic C. difficile DNA detection, and results were confirmed by PCR. One hundred and five positive C. difficile isolates were collected from patients with diarrheal diseases and tested using AuNPs based-assay. Ninety-six samples (91.4%) were detected positive using AuNPs based assay, as indicated by the color change from red to blue within 1 min. All ninety-six positive samples were positive for toxin B. In conclusion, nano-gold assay prototype was developed for direct and inexpensive detection of C. difficile. The developed prototypes are simple, sensitive, rapid and can substitute PCR-based detection. The developed assay may show potential in the clinical diagnosis of C. difficile, especially in developing countries as it is less costly as compared to the commercially available assays.
