Food safety is of paramount importance in a world where the demand for food is increasing rapidly due to a growing population. Food deemed unsafe for consumption poses a hazard to human health, as a result, food production companies responsible for hazardous outbreaks can suffer devastating consequences. There is a need for technology that can effectively monitor food safety and the environment in which food is grown to ensure that it is safe for consumption.
Now more than ever, the attention of the world is grasped by infectious diseases. Currently, the focus is centralised around a certain viral disease, however infectious diseases are caused by a variety of organisms, whether that is a virus, bacterium, fungi, or parasite. The diseases caused by such organisms can spread throughout a population either via human-to-human contact or via means of another host animal or insect (1).
