Paper-based sensing devices for quick and effective monitoring of red meat quality (2018)

Abstract:
This project addresses a critical meat quality need of the food industry and supply chain, to real time test the quality of red meat through simultaneous monitoring of volatile compounds generation during spoilage by a paper-based sensing device. The test result can be easily interpreted by comparing to the standard color scale by an unskilled end-user. Commercialisation of this new technology is expected to contribute to food quality determination and thus benefit to promote community health.
