While the vast majority of our food supplies are nutritious and safe, foodborne pathogen-related illness still affects millions of people each year. Large outbreaks of foodborne diseases such as the recent salmonella outbreak linked to various peanut butter products continue to be reported with alarming frequency.
All-Encompassing Guide to Detection Techniques
One of the most effective ways to control and prevent human foodborne infections is to implement a pathogen surveillance system. Addressing the biology, epidemiology, and pathogenesis of more than 60 microorganisms, Molecular Detection of Foodborne Pathogens demonstrates how to implement a surveillance system that uses state-of-the-art molecular techniques to quickly detect and identify bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic pathogens concerned.
Included in each chapter:
Concise review of the selected pathogen in respect to its biology, epidemiology, and pathogenesis
Summary of molecular detection methods available
Description of clinical/food sample collection and preparation procedures
Selection of robust, effective, step-by-step detection protocols
Discussion of the current challenges and ongoing research needs to further extend utility and performance of molecular diagnostic methods
With proven, ready-to-use protocols (including commercial kits), this globally pertinent resource demonstrates how speedy and effective detection methods can lead to more lives saved and a consistently safe, quality, and trustworthy food supply.
