Benefits of attending

This course is for Senior Microbiologists and Senior laboratory technical staff who already have a basic training in microbiology and who need to further their knowledge in specific areas of food microbiology or who are perhaps involved in laboratory management. This course is not suitable for delegates with no laboratory experience.

Delegates on the course will gain in-depth knowledge of food microbiology and also the factory environment, with an emphasis on understanding pathogenic testing methodology. Lectures give up-to-date information on both established and emerging food pathogens, as well as a variety of spoilage microorganisms. Practical demonstrations will show delegates relevant methods for detection and enumeration of microorganisms. Delegates will also receive information on the related areas of legislation, standards and specifications and the importance of a robust sampling plan.

• Salmonella
• Listeria
• Campylobacter
• Emerging and other pathogens including: Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus,Clostridium perfringens, E coli, VTEC/STEC including E coli O157,
