Handbook of microbiological media for the examination of food by Ronald M Atlas( Book )

23 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Responding to an estimated 14 million cases of food-borne disease that occur every year in the United States alone, the Food and Drug Administration and US Department of Agriculture have begun implementing new regulations and guidance for the microbial testing of foods. Similarly, Europe and other regions are implementing stricter oversight, as foodborne pathogens that cause deadly diseases such as e. coli 0157:H7 have raised the stakes everywhere. Food safety scientists have acted on this growing public health risk by developing improved media for the cultivation of bacteria, fungi, and viruses, much of it geared toward specific rapid detection. Reflecting the development of these new media and the latest FDA recommendations, the second edition of the Handbook of Microbiological Media for the Examination of Foodprovides an essential resource for anyone involved with the monitoring of both food production and post-production quality control. Organized alphabetically by medium, the expanded edition of this highly respected handbookincludes - * Descriptions of nearly 1,400 media including those recommended by the FDA, as well as media used elsewhere in the world * Concise and lucid instructions for the preparation and uses of each of the media * Cross-referenced indexing that allows the media to be found by name or specific microorganism of interest * Descriptions of expected results as they apply to microorganisms of importance for the examination of foods * Common synonyms for the various media and listings of compositions, so that alternate media an be effectively employed when needed Compiled by Ronald M. Atlas, a world-renowned researcher and author known for his pioneering work in pathogen detection, the Handbook of Microbiological Media for the Examination of Food, Second Edition, provides microbiologists with an essential tool for safeguarding public health."--Publisher's website

Polar microbiology : the ecology, biodiversity, and bioremediation potential of microorganisms in extremely cold environments by Asim K Bej( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Only Book To Focus on Bioremediation In Polar Regions Pollution has accompanied polar exploration since Captain John Davis' arrival to the Antarctic continent in 1821 and is now an unavoidable consequence of oil exploration in our polar regions. Fortunately, many organisms indigenous to Polar ecosystems have the ability to degrade pollutants. It is this metabolic capacity that forms the basis for bioremediation as a potential treatment for the hydrocarbons that contaminate polar environments. The only book to focus on bioremediation in the
One health : people, animals, and the environment by Ronald M Atlas( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One Health—the interdisciplinary approach that considers the fundamental connections between human, animal, and ecosystem health—is critical for the future control of infectious diseases. One Health is a global strategy that represents a paradigm shift in how we must respond to the threat of infectious diseases. Rather than identifying and treating infections in isolation, One Health focuses on a collaborative, holistic surveillance of the environment, animals, and humans to predict an outbreak of disease before it happens. This approach accelerates biomedical advances by integrating environmental, veterinary, and human medical science in understanding the development and transmission of infectious diseases. Topics include: the interconnectedness of human and animal pathogens •emerging diseases in animals and humans •case histories of notable recent zoonotic infections, including West Nile virus, hantavirus, Lyme disease, SARS, and Salmonella •epidemic zoonoses and corresponding environmental factors •insight into the mechanisms of microbial evolution toward pathogenicity •causes behind the emergence of antibiotic resistance •new technologies and approaches for public health disease surveillance •political and bureaucratic strategies for promoting the global acceptance of One Health." -- Cubierta

Handbook of media for clinical and public health microbiology by Ronald M Atlas( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Preface Almost 1,800 media are described in the Handbook of Media for Clinical and Public Health Microbiology, including newly described media for the cultivation of emerging pathogens. Diseases caused by emerging pathogens that are responsible for increased rates of morbidity and mortality rates, such as Escherichia coli O157:H7, methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin resistant enterococci (VRE), and carbapenem resistant enterococci (CRE) have raised special concerns and various media included in the Handbook have been designed for the specific cultivation and identification of these pathogens. Many of the new media included in the Handbook of Media for Clinical and Public Health Microbiology permit the cultivation of bacteria, fungi, and viruses that are currently causing major medical problems around the world. These media are very important for the rapid detection of pathogenic microorganisms and the diagnosis of individuals with specific infectious diseases and for preventing the spread of pathogens via food, water, and environmental sources. Several of the new media described in the Handbook of Media for Clinical and Public Health Microbiology include chromogenic or fluorogenic substrates that permit the rapid detection of specific pathogens. An important function of the Handbook of Media for Clinical and Public Health Microbiology is to provide descriptions of the media that are used to cultivate and identify microorganisms from clinical specimens and those of public health significance. The Handbook provides a compilation of the formulations, methods of preparation, and applications for media used in clinical and public health microbiology laboratories"--Provided by publisher
