Industrial Pharmaceutical Microbiology: Quality Control is an in-depth, comprehensive survey of quality control methods in the pharmaceutical microbiology laboratory to enable better understanding and to ensure better developed, more compliant, expedited procedures. The reference text brings together the hitherto unavailable background, fundamental science, principles, development, intended purpose, and specific answers to questions of execution and qualification of compendial and related microbiological test methods. Key topics include the types of microbiological tests, reference strains and culture collections, and equivalence of reference strain.

"This book should become a staple reference for the PDA membership, as pharmaceutical microbiology quality control is a topic central to the challenges faced by many working in our community," said Walter Morris, Senior Director of Publications and Press Relations, PDA. "Edward and Radhakrishna have done an excellent job assembling well-known authors who are frequent participants in other PDA activities."
