This proposal addresses issues of quality management, trace ability and safety during the production and processing of milk. It is proposed to design and development sensing devices for a range of key analytes as indicators of milk contamination and milk processing efficiency. Faecal contamination and aflatoxinm1 detection will be monitored during freshly milk collection. Then marker compounds as lactulose, lactose, lactosilated proteins and alkaline phosphates and lactoperoxidase enzymes will be analysed and quantified in real time using screen printed or composite biosensors and immuno-sensors coupled with flow-through or fia technology.
