The contamination problem in food safety is still a major concern not only for developing countries but also for the industrialized world. To guarantee the food safety, the advanced examination technique is needed urgently. However, the traditional methods have some typical drawbacks which include: high costs of implementation, long time of analysis and low samples throughput, and the need for high qualified manpower. The availability of fast, reliable and simple to use detecting tools for food products is therefore a target both for the safeguard of customer's health and production improvement. This article overviews the progress of the rapid detection methods for biological and chemical contamination in food.
