Abstract

Food analysis has become a very important and interesting area of research because of the rapid expansion of food trade and highly increased mobility of today’s populations. Food quality control is essential both for consumer protection and also for the food industry. Application of the electrochemical biosensors in the field of food analysis is promising. This review covers the recent developments and issues in electrochemical biosensors for food analysis, such as ease of preparation, robustness, sensitivity, and realization of mass production of the detection strategies. This review also emphasizes the current development of electrochemical biosensors combined with nanotechnology.
