Rapid detection technology of food microorganisms is more and more a hot research topic in the field of agricultural, food safety and environmental sciences. In order to understand the current status of world-wide research on rapid detection technology of food microorganisms, research literature during the period of 1925-2018 was retrieved from the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) database and analyzed using bibliometrics. Results showed that rapid microbial detection has entered the rapid growth phase after its forming phase and the initial phase. America enjoys absolute advantages in this field. China, Germany and Spain are also countries with relatively strong competitiveness. CSIC has the largest number of relevant published papers, while the papers from CNRS and INRA are the most influential ones. International Journal of Food Microbiology is the core journal that published the largest number of relevant papers, while Biosensors & Bioelectronics is the most influential relevant journal. Food Science and Technology is the subject of the most importance in this field. Biotechnology & Applied Microbiology and Microbiology are also significantly relevant. Researches in this field focus the most on relevant technologies on Molecular Biology, second on the technologies on Immune method and biosensors rank second, and the least on the technologies on metabolic methods. Sustainability has been seen in a part of the hot research topics, and new hot topics have also emerged. These results provide important insights to the development of rapid detection technology of food microorganisms in our country.
