Trends and opportunities in food pathogen detection
Despite the recent advances in food pathogen detection, there still exist many challenges and opportunities to improve the current technology. Techniques such as immunomagnetic separation (IMS) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) have paved the way for rapid and sensitive detection of foodborne pathogens, and advances in nanobiotechnology have allowed for miniaturization of devices. Collaborations between workers in the fields of engineering, nanotechnology and food science have introduced new lab-on-a-chip technologies permitting development of portable, hand-held biosensors for food pathogen detection. This report highlights examples within the current state of the art, and emphasizes areas in which further research is needed.
