About this book

Biosensors are increasingly being used to replace traditional methods of analyte detection in the food industry. They offer a much quicker, more reliable and more versatile method for the detection of toxins, allergens, hormones, microorganisms, pesticides and other related compounds. This book, therefore, showcases the latest biosensor development in a single resource.

Edited by Minhaz Uddin Ahmed, Mohammed Zourob and Eiichi Tamilya and with contributors from a list of world renowned scientists, this book covers the fabrication of biosensors, the development of miniatursied devices as well as the latest applications in the food industry. Several case studies of recent European food scandals emphasise the need for the development of reliable and affordable food monitoring devices.

Up to date information on the current issues facing food biosensor development is presented in this key resource for food biotechnologists, food chemists and biosensor related students and researchers all over the world.
