management of cooling water systems and the bacteria that live in them. Includes studies and testing of microbicides and other microorganisms that infest recirculating cooling water systems and factors influencing their health and growth. Tests biological oxidation processes as a way of reusing treated effluents as an important method of water conservation in the petroleum refining and chemical processing industries. Explores practical methods for controlling microorganisms in cooling water; including working with chlorine dioxide as a microbicide. Methods are given for identifying and evaluating toxicants and bacteria that lead to fouling and staining of cooling water systems.

This authoritative two-volume reference provides valuable, necessary information on the principles underlying the production of microbiologically safe and stable foods. The work begins with an overview and then addresses four major areas: 'Principles and application of food preservation techniques' covers the specific techniques that defeat growth of harmful microorganisms, how those techniques work, how they are used, and how their effectiveness is measured. 'Microbial ecology of different types of food' provides a food-by-food accounting of food composition, naturally occurring microflora, effects of processing, how spoiling can occur, and preservation. 'Foodborne pathogens' profiles the most important and the most dangerous microorganisms that can be found in foods, including bacteria, viruses, parasites, mycotoxins, and 'mad cow disease.' The section also looks at the economic aspects and long-term consequences of foodborne disease. 'Assurance of the microbiological safety and quality of foods' scrutinizes all aspects of quality assurance, including HACCP, hygienic factory design, methods of detecting organisms, risk assessment, legislation, and the design and accreditation of food microbiology laboratories. Tables, photographs, illustrations, chapter-by-chapter references, and a thorough index complete each volume. This reference is of value to all academic, research, industrial and laboratory libraries supporting food programs; and all institutions involved in food safety, microbiology and food microbiology, quality assurance and assessment, food legislation, and generally food science and technology.

My professional interest in antimicrobial agents and contamination control goes back 50 years to my tour as a microbiologist in a field hospital in Europe during World War II. With no experience and relying solely on a military handbook, I prepared thermometer trays with jars of blue bichloride of mercury and pink isopropyl alcohol. A preliminary typhoid diagnosis of one of our cooks resulted in the need for lab testing. His stool specimen and its subsequent disposal was my problem. My handbook said bum it. So burn it T did, in a five-gallon can with gasoline. Flames shot up almost six feet, and my next mistake was to extinguish them with carbon tetrachloride. This resulted in the production of lethal phosgene gas. The hospital had a near disaster. I could say that at that moment I vowed to write a how-to book so that such stupidities could be avoided. Nevertheless, when I was offered the opportunity to edit this book I thought back on the need for a real, practical treatment of my subject. This book, then, is a practical handbook for technical service personnel and scientists who are not necessarily specialists in microbiology. It provides information on suitable antimicrobial agents appropriate to their particular problem-solving needs and information on the microbial groups contributing to the specific problem, their ecologies, and strategies for controlling their access to the area or material of interest.

Throughout the world, milk and milk products are indispensablecomponents of the food chain. Not only do individual consumers useliquid milk for beverages and cooking, but food manufacturers usevast quantities of milk powder, concentrated milks, butter, andcream as raw materials for further processing. Effective qualityassurance in the dairy industry is needed now more than ever. Thiscompletely revised and expanded Third Edition of Dairy MicrobiologyHandbook, comprising both Volume I: Microbiology of Milk and VolumeII: Microbiology of Milk Products, updates the discipline’sauthoritative text with the latest safety research, guidelines, andinformation. Pathogens have become a major issue in dairy manufacturing.Escheria coli is a concern, and milk-borne strains of Mycobacteriumavium sub-sp. paratuberculosis have been identified as a possiblecause of Crohn’s disease. Even little-known parasites likeCryptosporidium have caused disease outbreaks. Consequently, ahazard analysis of selected control/critical points (HACCP) in anymanufacturing process has become essential to prevent thecontamination of food. This volume also: -Discusses new diagnostic techniques that allow a pathogen to bedetected in a retail sample in a matter of hours rather thandays -Provides thorough coverage of dairy microbiology principles aswell as practical applications -Includes the latest developments in dairy starter cultures andgenetic engineering techniques -Offers completely updated standards for Good ManufacturingPractice Quality control and product development managers,microbiologists, dairy scientists, engineers, and graduate studentswill find the Third Edition of Dairy Microbiology Handbook to be avital resource.
