Appraising Molecular Techniques for Rapid Identification and Quantification of Foodborne Pathogens

Ekta Soni


Abstract: Foodborne illnesses caused by bacterial pathogens poses a significant threat to public health worldwide. Traditional detection methods can take several days to produce results, making them inadequate for timely intervention in food safety issues. In recent years, significant advancements have made in the development of rapid detection techniques for foodborne pathogens. This review article provides an overview of the emerging trends in rapid detection technique for foodborne pathogens, including real time nucleic acid based detection, bacteriophage ?based biosensors, and advanced template preparation for PCR based assays. The review highlights the advantages and limitations of these techniques and discusses recent advancements that have improved their sensitivity and specificity. The review concludes that these rapid detection techniques have the potential to revolutionize the way we detect and control foodborne illnesses, ultimately leading to a safer food supply and healthier communities.
