Theory and application of Microbiological Assay

Author: William Hewitt

Publisher: Elsevier

ISBN: 0323155286

Category: Science

Page: 338

View: 1337

Theory and Application of Microbiological Assay first presents an overview of microbiological assay, including general principles, basic techniques, capabilities, and limitations. This book also explains when to use a certain microbiological assay for specific analysis, citing examples to further clarify the matter. Some chapters discuss the test organisms and solutions, wherein test solutions are the final dilutions at a series of two or more concentrations that have been prepared from reference standard and unknown for application to the test system. Other chapters explore the various aspects of agar diffusion assays, tube assays, and diffusion assays. The book further looks into the quality control procedures, assay design and evaluation, and assay replication. This book will serve as an introduction to newcomers to the field and as a reference source for established workers in microbiological assay.

The first book to emphasize microbiological and biochemical processes in the evaluation of soil reclamation, Soil Reclamation Processes presents the practical techniques necessary to plan more effective, long-range, low-cost reclamation projects. Combining basic scientific principles with concrete examples of existing methodology, this unique monograph examines the mycorrhizal aspects of toxic stressed reclamation environments, discusses the role of algae as indicators of succession and soil development, considers soil enzyme monitoring in relation to oil shale and other reclamation procedures, details microbial radionuclide transformations and problems in low-level waste storage environments, reviews the microbial aspects of phosphate clay dewatering and acid mine waste drainage reclamation, outlines the economic advantages of site modification prior to reclamation, and much more! Soil Reclamation Processes is timely reading for soil scientists, soil microbiologists, environmental scientists and engineers, agronomists, ecologists, geologists, biochemists, and civil engineers; reclamation project managers; and government agency and private institution personnel dealing with soil reclamation, environmental protection safety, water or soil conservation, land management, and mining. Additionally, the book is an ideal reference for advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in reclamation, general soils, environmental science, and environmental microbiology. Book jacket.

Innovative, constructive and continually evolving technologies are propelling microbiology into an exciting new era. This new era will witness the harnessing and control of complex microbial communities in a huge variety of applications in the industrial, medical and environmental spheres. State-of-the-art tools are being developed and utilized to analyse the molecules that microorganisms possess and generate, including DNA, RNA, proteins, lipids and cellular metabolites. This book, written by international experts in the field, presents emerging molecular methods that allow the diversity of a microbial community to be surveyed and its functions to be investigated. The first part of the book provides examples of the application of molecular microbiological methods in various industrial applications. Part two deals with the identification of microorganisms in medical settings while the third part presents case studies that use molecular methods to assess the structure and function of microbial communities in natural environments. The fourth part of the book describes in greater detail the methods and technologies featured in the preceding case studies including metagenomics, stable isotope probing, fluorescence in situ hybridization, quantitative PCR, reverse transcription PCR and single cell methods. These detailed descriptions enable readers to evaluate the applicability of various tools for approaching questions and case studies of their own. This practical, authoritative and up-to-date volume is a valuable resource for anyone applying or developing molecular methods in any area of microbiology and is a recommended acquisition for all microbiology laboratories.

Flow Cytometry in Microbiology

Author: Martin G. Wilkinson

Publisher: Caister Academic Press

ISBN: 1910190128

Category: Medical

Page: 230

View: 5210

Flow cytometry is a powerful technique for the rapid analysis of single cells in a mixture. In microbiology, flow cytometry permits the reliable and rapid detection of single or multiple microbes and can provide information about their distribution within cell populations. Flow cytometry may also lead to a faster means of viability counting of microorganisms while at the same time enabling a better understanding of all bacterial cells within a given population. Specially adapted commercial cytometers for microbial detection are being developed. In this text renowned authors have brought together a wealth of experience demonstrating the power and limitations of flow cytometry as it currently stands in the field of microbiology. The book commences with an overview of flow cytometry from Professor Howard Shapiro one of the most eminent scientists in the area of flow cytometry. Further chapters discuss cytometry technology and applications in environmental biotechnology, microbial community fingerprinting, clinical microbiology, lactic acid bacteria, spore forming bacteria, yeasts and fungi, water analysis and chip-based cytometry assays. The final chapter describes the adoption of flow cytometry to routine water quality analysis in Switzerland and provides a fascinating case study of how this emerging microbial technology overcame technical, regulatory and practical issues to become a standard rapid quality control methodology. The book provides a thorough description of flow cytometry and includes practical and up-to-date information aimed specifically at microbiologists. A major work on flow ctyometry for microbiologists, this book should be available in all microbiology libraries.

Metallurgical Applications of Bacterial Leaching and Related Microbiological Phenomena

Author: Lawrence Murr

Publisher: Elsevier

ISBN: 0323146503

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 544

View: 8571

Metallurgical Applications of Bacterial Leaching and Related Microbiological Phenomena is a collection of papers presented at the International Symposium on Metallurgical Applications of Bacterial Leaching and Related Microbiological Phenomena, held in New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology, Socorro, New Mexico on August 3-5, 1977. This book is organized into three sections encompassing 26 chapters. Section I emphasizes the role of microorganisms in the kinetics of leaching and similar metallurgical processes by stimulating a strong interaction between microbiologists and metallurgists. This section also discusses the basic study of microorganisms, in the strictly microbiological aspects of metal extraction and attendant conversion kinetics, and in the practical, engineering aspects of extraction. Section II deals with the microbiological leaching of waste materials, such as fly ash, slags, and jarosite-type leach residues. This section also describes a microbiological process for the recovery of sulfur in its elemental form from sulfate and sulfuric acid-containing aqueous wastes that are to be released in the environment. A microbiological leaching process for the removal of inorganic sulfur contained in coal is also described in this section. Considerable chapters in Section III are devoted to the specific applications of bacterial leaching, the optimization of the leaching conditions, and process optimization based upon economic considerations. This section also examines the advantages of large-scale testing compared with laboratory-testing. Workers in the fields of microbiology, biophysics, biochemistry, mineral processing and preparation, extractive and/or chemical metallurgy, mining engineering, and many related disciplines, including chemical and bioengineering, will find this book invaluable.
