- One major concern associated with food safety is related to residual effects of antibiotics that are widely used to treat animals and results in antimicrobial resistance. Among different groups of antibiotics, the use of quinolones in livestock is of major concern due to the significance of these antimicrobial drugs for the treatment of a broad range of infectious diseases in humans. Therefore, it is highly desirable to develop reliable methods for rapid, sensitive and on-site detection of quinolone residue levels in animal-derived foods to ensure food safety. Sensors and biosensors are promising future platforms for rapid and on-site monitoring of antibiotic residues. In this review, we focus on recent advancements and modern approaches in quinolones sensors and biosensors.
