Antimicrobial Resistance and Food Safety book cover

Antimicrobial Resistance and Food Safety

Methods and Techniques

Antimicrobial Resistance and Food Safety: Methods and Techniques introduces antimicrobial resistant food-borne pathogens, their surveillance and epidemiology, emerging resistance and resistant pathogens. This analysis is followed by a systematic presentation of currently applied methodology and technology, including advanced technologies for detection, intervention, and information technologies. This book can be used as a practical reference for scientists, food engineers and regulators as well as a reference for courses on Antimicrobial Resistance and Food Safety in Food Science.
