This reference examines laboratory techniques and FDA and industry perspectives on medical, food service, and consumer product applications of antimicrobials. It offers methods to conduct investigations of effectiveness that simulate use of consumer, food, and medical antimicrobials in real-world conditions and environments, validate neutralizing systems, develop reliable and functional antimicrobial products, and prevent infection, disease, and contamination. Additional topics include the importance of customer-valued quality attributes, such as low skin irritation and ease of use, label claims, regulatory procedures, and quality control, and clinical simulation protocols.
"A complex topic, explained thoroughly and insightfully, the Handbook appropriately combines theory, practice, and practicality.
"…provides good explanations of concepts with easily understood and visualized examples."
