Immunosensing has played a pivotal role in health management of humans and animals. In recent year, we have been witnessing a significant change in advancements made in the field of immunosensing in terms of enhanced sensitivity, ease of performing the assays, field applicability, and commercialization potential. Immunosensing technology or immunosensors (also called biosensors) are affinity-based devices capable of direct or indirect detection of an analyte of interest. This field of biotechnology possesses the capacity for invention of analytical tools and devices capable of powerful and precise detection of specific biotargets by the use of enzymes, aptamers, nanomaterials, antibodies, peptides, with a wide range of electrochemical, fluorescent-tagged, specific bioreceptor molecules. Animal production, perpetuation of selected traits, and maintenance of livestock health have long been a subject of extensive research. The biggest limitations of the diagnostic platforms developed are inability of its translation for real-time, on-site application owing to multiple factors. The most plausible solution proposed is the development of minimalistic device(s) capable of a rapid detection reaction with negligible sample processing, thus leading to surfacing of immunosensor devices. This review is aimed at emphasizing on the expansion of these devices which led to the advent of a concept popularized as “lab-on-a-chip” enabling the monitoring of physiological and reproductive health. The products’ mass-commercialization and applicability are the major challenges encountered in the process.
