The application of Chloramphenicol (CAP), a broad spectrum antibiotic, has been restricted in poultry, aquatic and other food producing animals in EU, Canada and US completely due to its numerous toxic, adverse and fatal side effects in human and veterinary. Hence, there is a constant requirement for accurate, simpler, faster and improved analytical method for its detection. Several methods have been developed and appeared in literature for the detection of CAP. Among all the techniques, the immonosening and electrochemical methods have been considered the foremost methods because of their unique features. The immunosensor show great sensitivity and selectivity, on the other hand low cost, easy operation, fast response time and excellent potential for miniaturization and construction for portable equipment applications make electrochemical sensors as preferred choice. Thus, this mini review brings the various immunosensing and electrochemical strategies applied for the preparation of CAP sensor in last twelve years (from 2000-2013) on one platform.
