Nowadays, the analysis of food is of high concern in terms of quality and safety. Microfluidic chemiluminescence have been devoted in vast food analyses proffering several merits and over performing different conventional methods in terms of sensitivity and selectivity. The ease of coupling with different separation techniques facilitated a comprehensive and adequate food analyses. This review explicitly focuses on the critical advancements in microfluidic chemiluminescence exploitation in food analyses based on the different pre-separation techniques utilized and the modes of coupling. Different dedications by microfluidic chemiluminescence systems including lab-on-a chip, μTAS, lab-on-a paper (μPADs) and lab -on- a cloth articles will be discussed and inspected.
