About this book

This highly practical book reviews the current status of these techniques from an international perspective, and with particular emphasis on commercially available detection and estimation systems.

'The authors keep themselves in the real world with regular references to the practical aspects of their subject and most of the commercially available kits are referred to. In some instances this is not done in glowing terms and shortfalls in some kits are identified, which in this day and age is something to be valued in a book of the type.' International Food Hygiene '...of great value to anyone wishing to gain updates into specific areas of rapid microbiological methods. The chapters are well researched and written and provide excellent reviews of their respective areas.' Society for General Microbiology 'This book is recommended...' Acta Alimentaria
