Description

This work reviews the current status of research and commercial developments in the field of biosensors used for food analysis. It looks at the possibilities of biosensors for food analysis, their capacity for measurement of a range of analytes and their ability to monitor complex biochemical parameters during the production or processing of foods. It examines several opportunities for biosensor applications within the food industry supply chain, for instance to indicate the quality and seasonal variation of natural resources.
