Advanced Food Analysis Tools: Biosensors and Nanotechnology provides the latest information on innovative biosensors and tools that are used to perform on-site detection tests. Food safety is a global health goal, with the food industry providing testing and guidance to keep the population safe. Food contamination is mainly caused by harmful substances and biological organisms, including bacteria, viruses and parasites, which can all have a major impact on human health. The lack of specific, low-cost, rapid, sensitive and easy detection of harmful compounds has resulted in the development of the electrochemical technologies that are presented in this book.
