Abstract:
    Aflatoxins-toxic metabolites are responsible for the contamination of agro products. For rapid detection of aflatoxins, immunosensors are advantageous in terms of low cost and simple construction.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Immuno-based sensors will allow rapid, easy, and timely detection of aflatoxins which are responsible for economic losses and health hazards through contamination of food supplies.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Food safety is one of the major problems faced by the world, this idea would benefit countries economically in preventing food losses and in resolving public health concerns, providing safe and nutritious food while reducing the risks of aflatoxin-related disease outbreaks.
How will the solution works
    An Immuno-based sensor would use an antigen or antibody species as biological recognition components coupled to a signal transducer such as graphite, gold, and carbon that help to detect the binding of the complementary species.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Such biosensors aren't yet available in the market, so there are no potential competitors.
