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 areas for future development. Each chapter is written by an expert or experts in the field who are highly conversant with the relevant topic being examined and its applications in the food area. A number of case studies demonstrating the utility of the methods described is included. To ensure that all key areas are covered, chapters include descriptions of sample preparation for analysis, often a major issue with foods, statistical sampling necessary for quality control, and the use of specific approaches, e.g. statistical, for verification of results. In addition, new technologies with significant potential use in specific facets of food analysis are included. These are by no means exhaustive but highlight novel strategies and platforms that offer significant opportunities for deployment to address key analytical challenges
