Opportunities and prospects biosensor technologies for food analysis

Cover Page


Existing developments in the field of biosensor technologies with the possibility of practical application for establishing food safety indicators were considered. The classification of biosensors is described depending on the physical phenomena underlying its work, the essence and examples of specific developments for the determination of microorganisms, heavy metals and antibiotics in food products are presented. Prospects of biosensor technologies in the food industry are estimated.
