This special issue of "Biosensors and Food Safety" is dedicated towards publication of research articles that address development and application of biosensors and novel sensors coupled with sample preprocessing, for detection, identification, and high throughput screening of foodborne microbial pathogens or toxins that are relevant to safety of food. Biosensors may include but not limited to optical, electrical, electrochemical and others that utilize both labeling reagents/probes or with label-free interrogation approaches.
