Abstract: There is a growing demand for rapid and reliable methods of determination of microorganism contamination of waters and food products to ensure quality assurance and to improve the health care system in general. Majority of the available methods for determination of microorganisms in foods are time consuming and expensive. In recent years, different approaches have been attempted to develop alternative procedures for determination of microorganisms. In the present chapter, we summarize the recent achievements in the development of synthetic recognition systems based devices for monitoring the presence of microorganisms, such as bacteria, bacteriophages, and viruses, in waters and food products. Molecular imprinting has been most successful in devising relevant synthetic receptors. Application of these recognition systems for determination of microorganisms is herein described in detail
