Alhogail displayed that TurboBeads bound to gold surfaces by specific peptide sequences can be used to detect listeria within just one minute of measurement time, directly from milk and meat samples.

Schneider et al. display that biomolecules can be attached to the surface of TurboBeads by click chemistry, and in a second step can be released unharmed from the particle surface by the use of a mild release agent (buffered oxide etch). Both chemistries (click chemistry and Si-F) are fully orthogonal to standard biochemical reactions.

TurboBeads with complexion groups covalently attached to the carbon surface were utilised to enrich dissolved copper from environmental waters prior to analysis by chelation ion chromatography. Detection limits for copper in sea water were as low as 0.1 ng / ml (i.e. 0.1 ppb).
