Description: Easytofollow experiments for building essential lab skillsYousef and Carlstroms Food Microbiology: A Laboratory Manual serves as a general laboratory manual for undergraduate and graduate students in food microbiology, as well as a training manual in analytical food microbiology. Focusing on basic skillbuilding throughout, the Manual provides a review of basic microbiological techniques--media preparation, aseptic techniques, dilution, plating, etc.--followed by analytical methods and advanced tests for foodbourne pathogens. The Manual includes a total of fourteen complete experiments.The first of the Manuals four sections reviews basic microbiology techniques; the second contains exercises to evaluate the microbiota of various foods and enumerate indicator microorganisms. Both of the first two sections emphasize conventional cultural techniques. The third section focuses on procedures for detecting pathogens in food, offering students the opportunity to practice cultural, biochemical, immunoassay, and genetic methods. The final section discusses beneficial microorganisms and their role in food fermentations, concentrating on lactic acid bacteria and their bacteriocins. This comprehensive text also:Focuses on detection and analysis of foodbourne pathogenic microorganisms like Escherichia coli 0157:H7, Listeria monocytogenes, and SalmonellaIncludes color photographs on a companion Web site in order to show students what their own petri plates or microscope slides should look like:http://class.fst.ohiostate.edu/fst636/fst636.htmExplains techniques in an accessible manner, using flow charts and drawingsEmploys a "building block" approach throughout, with each new chapter building upon skills from the previous chapterFood Microbiology: A Laboratory Manual provides an ideal text companion for an undergraduate or graduate laboratory course, offering professors an authoritative frame of reference for their own supplementary materials.
