Rapid microbiological methods catalogued

From April 2012 newsletter     
rapid micro methods

To help food microbiologists identify and exploit new rapid analytical methods for foodborne micro-organisms, we have produced a new edition of the Catalogue of Rapid Microbiological Methods. Updated and simplified, the seventh edition lists over 400 test kits from around 50 manufacturers used in the detection, confirmation and enumeration of microorganisms found in food.

The new review covers pathogens of interest to the agri-food chain (e.g. Salmonella, Listeria, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Cryptosporidium), spoilage organisms (e.g. yeasts) and hygiene testing. In simple tabular form it provides information at-a-glance on what kits are available from which companies and for what micro-organisms.
