Description

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 reference can be used as a practical guide for scientists, food engineers, and regulatory personnel as well as students in food safety, food microbiology, or food science.

Key Features

  • Includes analysis of all major pathogens of concern
  • Provides many case studies and examples of fundamental research findings
  • Presents recent advances in methodologies and analytical software
  • Demonstrates risk assessment using information technologies in foodborne pathogens

Readership

Research Biologists, Microbiologists, Researchers in government, and product development managers as well as their allied industries
