Responding to an estimated 14 million cases of food-borne disease that occur
every year in the United States alone, the Food and Drug Administration and US
Department of Agriculture have begun implementing new regulations and guidance
for the microbial testing of foods. Similarly, Europe and other regions are
implementing stricter oversight, as foodborne pathogens that cause deadly
diseases such as e. coli 0157:H7 have raised the stakes everywhere. Food safety
scientists have acted on this growing public health risk by developing improved
media for the cultivation of bacteria, fungi, and viruses, much of it geared
toward specific rapid detection.
Reflecting the development of these new media and the latest FDA
recommendations, the second edition of the Handbook of Microbiological Media
for the Examination of Food provides an essential resource for anyone involved
with the monitoring of both food production and post-production quality control.
Organized alphabetically by medium, the expanded edition of this highly
respected handbookincludes –
· Descriptions of nearly 1,400 media including those recommended by
the FDA, as well as media used elsewhere in the world
· Concise and lucid instructions for the preparation and uses of each
of the media
· Cross-referenced indexing that allows the media to be found by name
or specific microorganism of interest
· Descriptions of expected results as they apply to microorganisms of
importance for the examination of foods
· Common synonyms for the various media and listings of compositions,
so that alternate media an be effectively employed when needed
Compiled by Ronald M. Atlas, a world-renowned researcher and author known for
his pioneering work in pathogen detection, the Handbook of Microbiological
Media for the Examination of Food, Second Edition , provides microbiologists
with an essential tool for safeguarding public health.
