Presenting a novel view of the quantitative modeling of microbial growth and inactivation patterns in food, water, and biosystems, this book describes new models and calculation methods that enable estimation of microbial growth and survival under a variety of conditions. The author provides coverage of both traditional and alternative models of thermal and non-thermal inactivation. The volume includes chapters on microbial dose response, interpretation of irregular count records and estimation of the frequencies of future outbursts. Featuring numerous illustrations, equations, tables and figures, Advanced Quantitative Microbiology for Foods and Biosystems: Models for Predicting Growth and Inactivation makes a valuable reference tool for food and water microbiologists, food technologists and engineers, government officials, public health specialists, academicians and researchers.
