Abstract: The rapid and reliable detection of biological and chemical contaminants is extremely important in managing the safety of food and feed. Rapid Methods is a comprehensive reference source for anyone interested in this subject. Developments in analyticla techniques have led to the emergence of a wide range of rapid methods to complement the traditional methods. At the same time, the importance of method validation, proficiency testing, quality management, sampling and legislation have all become more widely recognised. Rapid Methods presents a firm base and structured framework for considering rapid analysis of biological and chemical contaminants in food and feed. The various chapters concentrate on the state of the art in rapid methods as regards to legislation, sampling, method validation, microbial pathogens, biological materials such as GMOs and allergens, toxins like bacterial food poisoning toxins, marine toxins and biogenic amines and chemicals like veterinary drugs, pesticides and dioxins. The nature of the theme, the excellence of the peer-reviewed papers and the holistic approach chosen in this book will draw an audience from both the food and the feed industry as well as from the scientific community.
