This new edition of Laboratory Methods in Food Microbiology has been substantially revised and split into a number of easy reference sections. They describe a wide range of methods for use in the microbiological analysis of foods, including approaches to counting and detection procedures for microorganisms, identification of bacteria, yeasts and fungi, microbiological analysis for the main food commodity groups, and safety in the food microbiology laboratory. The considerable revision of the ISO standards for the microbiological analysis of foods in 1995 and 1996 have been incorporated into this new edition. The book also discusses specific food poisoning outbreaks in the United States.
The organization of Laboratory Methods in Food Microbiology allows the reader to choose between basic methodology; general horizontal methods; commodity-specific (vertical) methods and identification. All the methods are evaluated to allow the reader to select the best technique for their application with reference to ease of use and HACCP quality management monitoring. This approach based on the author's extensive experience will be valuable for every food science laboratory.
