Introduction In the past few decades, people have become more cognizant of sustainability issues and its importance for the human life on this planet. The Brundtland Commission of the United Nation defines the sustainability as; “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” [1]. John Elkington [2], further elaborated the concept of sustainability and presents the Triple Bottom Line approach, based on three important dimensions: (i) Environmental dimension (planet); (ii) Economic dimension (profit) and (iii) Social dimension (people health and welfare). The social dimension of sustainability is associated with people’s well-being and includes many aspects; such as social justice, equality, food security, health and quality of life.

The modern food supply chains have become much faster and more complex due to the globalization and outsourcing of food products. 2. Table 1. 2.1. 2.2. 2.3. 4. 4.1. Figure 5. 4.2. 5.

SCIENCE DAILY 14/06/16 Electronic bacteria sensor is potential future tool for medicine and food safety. A new type of electronic sensor that might be used to quickly detect and classify bacteria for medical diagnostics and food safety has passed a key hurdle by distinguishing between dead and living bacteria cells.

SCIENCE DAILY 14/06/16 Electronic bacteria sensor is potential future tool for medicine and food safety

Conventional laboratory technologies require that samples be cultured for hours or longer to grow enough of the bacteria for identification and analysis, for example, to determine which antibiotic to prescribe. The new approach might be used to create arrays of hundreds of sensors on an electronic chip, each sensor detecting a specific type of bacteria or pinpointing the effectiveness of particular antibiotics within minutes. "We have taken a step toward this long-term goal by showing how to distinguish between live and dead bacteria," said Muhammad Ashraful Alam, Purdue University's Jai N.

NATURE 04/04/16 SCIENTIFIC REPORT - A novel, optical, on-line bacteria sensor for monitoring drinking water quality. Measuring principle The developed sensor consists of: 1) an optical flow-cell holding the water sample during analysis, 2) a dark field imaging setup with a light-emitting diode (LED) light source, a magnification lens, and a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS)-based camera arrangement (Fig. 1A), and 3) an image analysis system to identify and classify individual particles.

CSIRO - 2015 - Bio-sensors: discovering the secret life of oysters

One of the challenges facing the oyster industry is understanding the effect of environmental conditions on oyster growth. This knowledge can then be incorporated in production processes to ensure industry quality assurance standards are maintained. Bio-sensors providing real time analysis CSIRO and the University of Tasmania, through our Sense-T partnership, have developed a world first mollusc bio-sensor capable of delivering multiple physiological parameters in real-time from sentinel animals in commercial environments. The sensors, which are smaller than the size of a pea, connect to a credit card sized electronics board and are attached to ‘sentinel’ animals.

FOOD QUALITY NEWS 12/08/14 Biosensor tested as pathogen screening device.

The method involves performing an in-situ immunoassay on a magnetic bead through the formation of a sandwich complex of the target bacteria and the probe followed by the release of fluorophores by enzymatic digestion with proteinase K. Factors critical to the suitability of detection methods and sensors were investigated, including sensitivity, limit of detection (LOD), detection time and ease of use.

It consists of an immunomagnetic bead as a solid support for capturing bacteria and a probe antibody-dBSA conjugate labeled with fluorophores (IFdBSA). Pathogens tested The LOD was <5 CFU/mL of the tested pathogens (E.coli O157:H7, Salmonella typhimurium, and Listeria monocytogenes) in buffer. Fluorescence images of bacteria used as targets and stained by the corresponding IFdBSA probe.

MIT NEWS 14/04/15 MIT sensor detects spoiled meat - Tiny device could be incorporated into “smart packaging” to improve food safety. MIT chemists have devised an inexpensive, portable sensor that can detect gases emitted by rotting meat, allowing consumers to determine whether the meat in their grocery store or refrigerator is safe to eat.

MIT NEWS 14/04/15 MIT sensor detects spoiled meat - Tiny device could be incorporated into “smart packaging” to improve food safety.

The sensor, which consists of chemically modified carbon nanotubes, could be deployed in “smart packaging” that would offer much more accurate safety information than the expiration date on the package, says Timothy Swager, the John D. MacArthur Professor of Chemistry at MIT. It could also cut down on food waste, he adds. “People are constantly throwing things out that probably aren’t bad,” says Swager, who is the senior author of a paper describing the new sensor this week in the journal Angewandte Chemie. The paper’s lead author is graduate student Sophie Liu.

The sensor is similar to other carbon nanotube devices that Swager’s lab has developed in recent years, including one that detects the ripeness of fruit.

FOOD QUALITY NEWS 02/08/13 ME biosensors show promise for pathogen detection on food surfaces. Pathogens can be detected on fresh food surfaces in real-time and in-situ thanks to a coil measurement technique demonstrated by researchers. The surface-scanning coil detector excites and measures the resonant frequency of free-standing magnetoelastic (ME) biosensors that may be placed outside the solenoid coil boundaries. Previously they had to be placed inside the coil before frequency measurement which limited their use to small objects or volumes that will fit within the coil, said Chai et al. However, they found that the biosensor's frequency changes in a high humidity condition (95% RH).

Yet it's an all-too-common one, with foodborne illnesses making 1 in 6 Americans—or 48 million people—sick each year. Of these people sickened, 128,000 end up in the hospital, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, while 3,000 die.

Rapid detection of multidrug-resistant organism (MDRO) carriers could help reduce MDRO infections by allowing for faster institution of prevention measures.

However, improving the turnaround time (TAT) of a test requires attention to more than the analytic TAT, and will only occur if postanalytic processes (test reporting and care interventions) are also rapid and efficient. Obstacles to rapid MDRO test development include complex evolving resistance mechanisms, performance directly on mixed samples (eg, nares, stool), and adaptation of new methods for routine clinical diagnostic use.
