ABSTRACT
The interaction of nanotechnology and biosciences opens the possibility for a wide variety of biological research topics and day-to-day applications at the molecular and cellular level. In particular, nanotechnology has been revolutionizing the area of biosensor. Nanobiosensor, an integration of physical sciences, molecular engineering, biology, chemistry and biotechnology holds the possibility of detecting and manipulating atoms and molecules using nanodevices, which have the potential for a wide range of both industrial and domestic applications. The role of electrochemical nanobiosensor in food analysis is an important and interesting area. This review covers the basic principles and types of electrochemical biosensor formats, role of nanomaterials for biosensor and reported food-specific applications of electrochemical nanobiosensors.
