Description

This manual was prepared with standardized methods published by renowned international organizations such
as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the American Public Health Association (APHA),
AOAC International, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Agriculture
(USDA).
The manual includes methods for the enumeration of indicator microorganisms of general contamination (total
aerobic mesophilic bacteria, lactic acid bacteria, yeasts and molds), indicators of hygiene and sanitary conditions
(coliforms, E. coli, enterococci), sporeforming bacteria (aerobic thermophilic and mesophilic bacteria, anaerobic
thermophilic and mesophilic bacteria, Alicyclobacillus), spoilage fungi (thermoresistant molds, osmophilic yeasts,
preservative resistant yeasts) and pathogenic bacteria (Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus
cereus, Clostridium perfringens, Cronobacter, Campylobacter, Yersinia enterocolitica, Vibrio cholerae, Vibrio parahaemolyticus). The chapter covering the examination of water includes methods for the detection and determination of
coliforms, E. coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and enterococci.
The major objective of the book is to provide an illustrated laboratory manual with an overview of current
standard microbiological methods for the examination of food and water. The didactic setup and the visualization
of procedures in step-by-step schemes allow student and practitioner to quickly perceive and execute the procedure
intended. Each chapter provides numerous methods for a certain examination, and also provides simple or quick
alternatives. The chapters’ introductions summarize the existing knowledge regarding the target microorganism(s)
and present the most useful information available in literature.
Support material, including drawings, procedure schemes and laboratory sheets, is available for downloading and
customization from the CRC Press website (http://www.crcpress.com), under the ‘Downloads’ tab of this book’s
online record.
The book is intended for laboratory education of undergraduate and graduate students in food engineering and
related disciplines and as an up-to-date practical companion for researchers, analysts, technicians and teachers.
The authors would like to express their gratitude to Mr. Paul van Dender, who mo
