About this book

This volume results from a conference jointly sponsored by the Biotechnology Unit of the Government Chemist and the Society for Applied Bacteriology. ATP (Adenosine TriPhosphate - the basic molecule of energy) luminscence technology is an effective and rapid method for assaying microbial numbers. Although developed in the 1970s, only recently has the method been made reliable. This volume covers a braod range of topics concerned with this form of rapid microbiology. contains detailed coverage of the most recent advances made in this area edited by the major authorities in the field


Contents

A concise beginner's guide to rapid microbiology using adenose triphosphate (ATP) and luminescence; ATP assays in routine microbiology: from visions to realities in the 1980s; The scientific literature concerning bioluminescence and chemiluminescence: the use of a specialized database; Control of experimental factors involved in luminescent ATP assays; Cold ATP extracts compatible with constant light signal firefly luciferase reagents; The effect of extractant and sample composition on the performance of a commercial firefly luciferase reagent
