Aflatoxin is the most harmful mycotoxin which is ubiquitous in foods and agricultural supplies. Since the health of human population is largely determined by the condition of food-producing, contaminated foods and agricultural supplies with aflatoxin can put the safety of people in jeopardy and lead to some fatal disease. In 2003 estimated the annual cost of aflatoxin contamination in the U.S. at about 500 million strong concern for human life. There are a great demand for development of rapid, sensitive and specific methods for detection of aflatoxin at trace levels. The purpose of this review is limited to novel aflatoxin biosensors, paying special attention to those based on the use of nanotechnology. The basic principles of various biosensors such as electrochemical, optical and piezoelectric biosensors have been covered. Future trends in Nanomaterial-mediated Bio and immune sensors used for onset biosensing and improvement of mobile sensors are also highlighted. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.
