Essential Microbiology for Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science
Paperback, February 2013, ©2013, Wiley-Blackwell
Much of the applied microbiology that a pharmacist or pharmaceutical scientist needs to know is unique: topics like the manufacture of microbiologically sterile medicines and their subsequent protection against microbial contamination and spoilage, the detection of hazardous microorganisms in medicines and antibiotics' manufacture and assay are all covered here. Essential Microbiology for Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science Students displays material in an easy to-digest format and concepts are explained using diagrams, tables and pictures wherever possible. The book contains an extensive self-assessment section that includes typical multiple choice, short answer and essay-style examination questions, and a companion website to further test your knowledge from a selection of questions along with further links to relevant sites.
“As a quick review for budding pharmaceutical chemists who are learning pharmaceutical microbiology, this book could be useful. It is generally well written and presents a brief outline of the topics that it seeks to cover.” (Doody’s, 21 June 2013)
