This review surveys rapid bioluminescent detection techniques applied in food industry and discusses the historical development of the rapid methods. These techniques are divided into two groups: methods based on bioluminescent adenosine triphosphate (ATP) assay, and on bacterial bioluminescence. The advantages and disadvantages of these methods are described. The article provides the bibliography of fluorescent method applications in food samples.Keywords:
