Molecular Detection of Foodborne Pathogens (Hardback)

£195.00
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

While the vast majority of our food supplies are nutritious and safe, foodborne pathogen-related illness still affects millions of people each year. Large outbreaks of foodborne diseases - such as the recent salmonella outbreak linked to various peanut butter products - continue to be reported with alarming frequency.





All-Encompassing Guide to Detection Techniques











One of the most effective ways to control and prevent human foodborne infections is to implement a pathogen surveillance system. Addressing the biology, epidemiology, and pathogenesis of more than 60 microorganisms, Molecular Detection of Foodborne Pathogens demonstrates how to implement a surveillance system that uses state-of-the-art molecular techniques to quickly detect and identify bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic pathogens concerned.





Included in each chapter:

















Concise review of the selected pathogen in respect to its biology, epidemiology, and pathogenesis

Summary of molecular detection methods available

Description of clinical/food sample collection and preparation procedures

Selection of robust, effective, step-by-step detection protocols

Discussion of the current challenges and ongoing research needs to further extend utility and performance of molecular diagnostic methods

















With proven, ready-to-use protocols (including commercial kits), this globally pertinent resource demonstrates how speedy and effective detection methods can lead to more lives saved and a consistently safe, quality, and trustworthy food supply.

Dongyou Liu, Ph.D., is currently a research scientist at Human Genetic Signatures, North Ryde, NSW, Australia. Previously, he graduated in 1982 with a veterinary science degree from Hunan Agricultural University, China, and then completed his postgraduate study on immunological diagnosis of human hydatid disease in 1989 at the University of Melbourne, Australia. During the past two decades, he has worked in several research and clinical laboratories in Australia and the United States of America, with emphases on the molecular mechanisms of bacterial pathogenicity and the development of nucleic acid-based assays for species- and virulence-specific determination of microbial pathogens such as ovine footrot bacterium (Dichelobacter nodosus), dermatophyte fungi (Trichophyton, Microsporum and Epidermophyton) and listeriae (Listeria species). He is the editor of Handbook of Listeria monocytogenes and Handbook of Nucleic Acid Purification, both of which are published by CRC Press.
