A biosensor is an analytical device, used for the detection of an analyte , that combines a biological component with a physicochemical detector. [ 1 ] the sensitive biological element (e.g. tissue, microorganisms, organelles, cell receptors, enzymes , antibodies , nucleic acids , etc.), a biologically derived material or biomimetic component that interacts (binds or recognizes) the analyte under study.

The detection and identification of foodborne pathogens continue to rely on conventional culturing techniques. These are very elaborate, time-consuming, and have to be completed in a microbiology laboratory and are therefore not suitable for on-site monitoring. The need for a more rapid, reliable, specific, and sensitive method of detecting a target analyte, at low cost, is the focus of a great deal of research.
