More than 200 billion medical products are sterilized each year. Despite this extraordinary activity, no reference book until now has examined the full range of sterilization methods used by thousands of hospitals, clinics and corporations. Sterilization Technology offers a practical presentation of traditional and advanced sterilization procedures, as well as coverage of the equipment and facilities necessary to apply them. More than 25 contributors, experts at the forefront of sterilization science, provide a one-step, how-to resource for scientists, engineers, microbiologists, health care professionals and other technical or managerial personnel involved in sterilization. Comprehensive and practical, Sterilization Technology is a valuable resource for microbiologists, biologists and engineers, as well as for anyone involved in the supervision, planning and implementation of sterilization processes or research efforts. Appropriate for non-technical managers, this reference enables a clear understanding of the technology needed to protect personnel, to obtain requisite equipment and to comply with federal and state regulations. The information provided in Sterilization Technology is also essential for professionals concerned with creating and enforcing regulations for sterilization practices.

The effective sterilisation of any material or device to be implanted in or used in close contact with the human body is essential for the elimination of harmful agents such as bacteria. Sterilisation of biomaterials and medical devices reviews established and commonly used technologies alongside new and emerging processes. Following an introduction to the key concepts and challenges involved in sterilisation, the sterilisation of biomaterials and medical devices using steam and dry heat, ionising radiation and ethylene oxide is reviewed. A range of non-traditional sterilisation techniques, such as hydrogen peroxide gas plasma, ozone and steam formaldehyde, is then discussed together with research in sterilisation and decontamination of surfaces by plasma discharges. Sterilisation techniques for polymers, drug-device products and tissue allografts are then reviewed, together with antimicrobial coatings for ‘self-sterilisation’ and the challenge presented by prions and endotoxins in the sterilisation of reusable medical devices. The book concludes with a discussion of future trends in the sterilisation of biomaterials and medical devices. With its distinguished editors and expert team of international contributors, Sterilisation of biomaterials and medical devices is an essential reference for all materials scientists, engineers and researchers within the medical devices industry. It also provides a thorough overview for academics and clinicians working in this area.

Food Safety Management: A Practical Guide for the Food Industry with an Honorable Mention for Single Volume Reference/Science in the 2015 PROSE Awards from the Association of American Publishers is the first book to present an integrated, practical approach to the management of food safety throughout the production chain. While many books address specific aspects of food safety, no other book guides you through the various risks associated with each sector of the production process or alerts you to the measures needed to mitigate those risks. Using practical examples of incidents and their root causes, this book highlights pitfalls in food safety management and provides key insight into the means of avoiding them. Each section addresses its subject in terms of relevance and application to food safety and, where applicable, spoilage. It covers all types of risks (e.g., microbial, chemical, physical) associated with each step of the food chain. The book is a reference for food safety managers in different sectors, from primary producers to processing, transport, retail and distribution, as well as the food services sector. Honorable Mention for Single Volume Reference/Science in the 2015 PROSE Awards from the Association of American Publishers Addresses risks and controls (specific technologies) at various stages of the food supply chain based on food type, including an example of a generic HACCP study Provides practical guidance on the implementation of elements of the food safety assurance system Explains the role of different stakeholders of the food supply
