Molecular Microbial Diagnostic Methods : Pathways to Implementation for the Food and Water Industries
About this item
Molecular Microbial Diagnostic Methods: Pathways to Implementation in the Food and Water Industries attempts to address the shortage of guidance on implementation of molecular-based methods for routine diagnostic laboratories.
The book uncovers industry needs for the use of molecular methods by providing a brief history of water and food analysis and the pathogens of concern. It also describes the potential impact of current and cutting-edge molecular methods. It discusses the advantages of the implementation of molecular methods, describes information on when and how to use specific methods, and presents why one should utilize them for pathogen detection in the routine laboratory.
The reference material in the book is also pertinent for anyone carrying out microbiological analysis at the research level and covers a wide spectrum of classical and cutting-edge methods.
- Includes information on how to implement molecular methods for routine monitoring in food and water laboratories
- Discusses the importance of validation of molecular methods as alternatives to existing standard methods
- Attempts to highlight potential issues with respect to successful implementation of these methods
