There is a worldwide problem with food contamination, with an increasing number of outbreaks, and food safety. Consequently, there is a need for rapid tracing of foods as well as requirements for food authentication. This book provides a description of antibody-based technologies used in food analysis. It focuses on key applications outlining the approaches used, their advantages and limitations, and future areas for development. An expert in the field has written each chapter and a number of case studies demonstrating the utility of each of the methods described is included. It is for researchers and scientists in the field who have to acquire, verify and use technologies for food analysis, food producers and processors, food safety and testing laboratories, and government agencies.
