Innovations in Biosensors for Food Quality and Safety
Current Innovations in Biosensors for Food Quality and Safety
Monday, July 18, 2:15–3:45 p.m.
The use of biosensors as emerging technologies could revolutionize the study and detection of foodborne pathogens, contaminants, and biomarkers for food quality. Even though the biosensor research field attracts the attention of national initiatives across the world and tens of thousands of papers have been published in the area, very few of these biosensor technologies actually translate from research labs to real-world applications, in particular for food systems applications.
This symposium will feature some recent and significant advances in the field of biosensing and its applications to food safety, food quality, and food processing as well as other biological systems. Presentations will provide insightful scientific and engineering analysis of advanced biosensor systems and propose future research directions. The speakers will address current innovations and challenges in biosensing technology and discuss strategies and efforts to translate current research into practical applications involving microorganisms, pathogens, and pesticides.
