A handheld sensor assay for the identification of grouper as a safeguard against seafood mislabelling fraud


Scientists at the University of South Florida’s College of Marine Science have devised a handheld sensor which can be used to detect fish fraud in under 45 minutes. The whole process can be performed outside the lab and employs a real-time nucleic acid sequence-based amplification assay (RT-NASBA).
