This book focuses on practical, proven applications to automate the microbial identification process economically and with greater levels of safety and quality for patients. A diverse group of recognized experts survey the topic and present the latest techniques and technologies for microbial detection. They cover bacteria and yeasts, the technology of automation, equipment, methods, and the validation issues involved in "going automated." They also explore the challenges of detection and quantititation of contaminants in the increasing number of biologic injectable drugs and identify current trends in the industry.
