Paper Abstract

To ensure the safety of food, a detection device, which can detect/monitor the present of bacteria in a real-time manner and can be easily used for in-field tests, is highly desirable. Recently, magnetostrictive particles (MSPs) as a new type of high-performance biosensor have been developed. The detection of various bacteria and spores in food with high sensitivity has already been experimentally demonstrated. To fully use the technique for food safety, two miniaturized interrogation systems based on frequency-domain and time-domain technique are developed to fabricate a handheld detection device. The detection of Salmonella typhimurium (S. typhimurium) in liquid using a time-domain based interrogation system was demonstrated.
