Development of Sensing Methods and Technologies For Rapid Screening of Foods For Microbial, Chemical, and Biological Contaminants

Start date
End date

The objective is to develop and validate user-friendly analytical sensing methods and technologies for targeted and non-targeted rapid screening of foods for microbial, chemical, and biological contaminants. The aim of the research is to design and develop prototypes of transportable devices that can scan large surface areas of foods for microbial, chemical, and biological contaminants with high throughput capacities suitable for use in commercial food processing facilities.
