Detection of Foodborne Pathogens Using Biosensors

Abstract

To prevent the outbreaks of foodborne diseases, early detection of common pathogens is necessary. This can be achieved by using field deployable biosensors. In this chapter, traditional laboratory-based assays are discussed: culture plating and colony counting, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Subsequent efforts to make these laboratory assays into field-deployable biosensors are discussed, specifically using the lab-on-a-chip (LOC) platforms, paper microfluidics, and smartphones.
