Rapid Antibody-based Technologies in Food Analysis Editor: Richard O’Kennedy


About this book

There are significant challenges in food analysis, problems with food contamination and authentication, and a worldwide need to ensure food safety.

This book provides a description of antibody-based technologies used in food analysis. It focuses on key applications, outlining the approaches used, their advantages and limitations, and describes future areas for development. Chapters are written by experts in the field, critically examining each of the currently used methodologies and highlighting new evolving technologies, such as lab-on-chip and microfluidics-based devices and biosensors. Case studies demonstrating the utility of each of the methods described are included. Important introductory chapters cover sample preparation for analysis and statistical sampling necessary for quality control for verification of results. An overview chapter highlighting major analytical issues and areas that have specific requirements, e.g. food authentication, is provided.

Researchers and scientists in the field who have to acquire, verify and use technologies for food analysis, food producers and processors, food safety and testing laboratories, and government agencies will all find this a useful addition to their library.
