Microbiological Culture Media: A Complete Guide for Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Manufacturers


Did you realize that 90 percent of quality control microbiology remains reliant upon culture-based methods? Taking this fact into account, Microbiological Culture Media: A Complete Guide for Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Manufacturers serves as an excellent reference because it focuses on microbiological culture media as applied to pharmaceutical microbiology.

In 23 informative chapters, this book covers how media is used in the modern pharmaceutical microbiology setting and recaps the past, signals the future, and helps interpret the present. The book has been written by Tim Sandle.
