    Abstract

    This communication reports the first demonstration of the detection of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Neisseria meningitidis bacterial DNA extracted from anonymous patient CSF samples and assesses the applicability of a previously developed SERS based DNA detection assay as a platform for the detection of multiple meningitis pathogens from clinical samples.
