Detailed resource presenting the capabilities of MALDI mass spectrometry (MS) to industrially and environmentally significant areas in the biosciences

Microbiological Identification using MALDI-TOF and Tandem Mass Spectrometry: Industrial and Environmental Applications fulfills a need to bring the key analytical technique of MALDI mass spectrometric analysis into routine practice by specialists and non-specialists, and technicians. It informs and educates established researchers on the development of techniques as applied to industrially significant areas within the biosciences. Throughout the text, the reader is presented with recognized and emerging techniques of this powerful and continually advancing field of analytical science to key areas of importance.

While many scientific papers are reporting new applications of MS-based analysis in specific foci, this book is unique in that it draws together an incredibly diverse range of applications that are pushing the boundaries MS across the broad field of Biosciences.

Contributed to by recognized experts in the field of MALDI MS who have been key players in promoting the advancement and dissemination of authoritative information in this field, Microbiological Identification using MALDI-TOF and Tandem Mass Spectrometry covers sample topics such as:

-Oil microbiology, marine and freshwater ecosystems, agricultural and food microbiology, and industrial waste microbiology
-Bioremediation and landfill sites microbiology, microbiology of inhospitable sites (e.g., Arctic and Antarctic, and alkaline and acidic sites, and hot temperatures)
-Veterinary, poultry and animals, viral applications of MS, and antibiotic resistance using tandem MS methods
-Recent developments which are set to transform the use of MS from its success in clinical microbiology to a wide range of commercial and environmental uses

Bridging the gap between measurement and key applications, this text is an ideal resource for industrial and environmental analytical scientists, including technologists in the food industry, pharmaceuticals, and agriculture, as well as biomedical scientists, researchers, clinicians and academics and scientists in bio-resource centers.
