Over the last twenty years, newly developed chemical sensor systems (so-called "electronic noses") have odour analyses made possible. This paper describes the applications of these systems for microbial detection in different fields such as medicine and the food industry, where fast detection methods are essential for appropriate management of health care. Several groups have employed different electronic noses for classification and quantification of bacteria and fungi to obtain accurate medical diagnosis and food quality control. So far, detection and identification of bacterial and fungal volatiles have been achieved by use of e-noses offering different correct classification percentages. The present review includes examples of bacterial and fungal species producing volatile compounds and correlated to infectious diseases or food deterioration. The results suggest the possibility of using this new technology both in medical diagnostics and in food control management. Â© 2006 by MDPI.
