Fungi: A Handbook for Life Science Manufacturers and Researchers


A new text has been issued, designed to help identify and ameliorate fungal and mold problems and contains a wealth of information as a guide and reference. Many topics are discussed relevant to the food and agriculture industries, including the biology of fungi, outbreaks associated with pharmaceutical drug products and medical devices, mycotoxins, fungal biodegradation and remediation, and strategies for a rapid and accurate fungal identification. The text also contains a lengthy fungal glossary.

The book is Fungi: A Handbook for Life Science Manufacturers and Researchers, edited by Jeanne Moldenhauer.

I'm pleased to have contributed two chapters:

Sandle, T. (2020) An anatomy of fungal spores: Formation, dispersal and transfer risk. In Moldenhauer, J. (Ed.) Fungi: A handbook for Life Science Manufacturers and Researchers, DHI Publishing, River Grove, IL, USA, pp101-148

Sandle, T. (2020) Investigating sources of fungi in pharmaceutical and healthcare facilities and taking appropriate action. In Moldenhauer, J. (Ed.) Fungi: A handbook for Life Science Manufacturers and Researchers, DHI Publishing, River Grove, IL, USA, pp247-286

The book is available via the PDA Bookstore.
