Hugo and Russels | sixth Edition| Pdf | 2607kb
A textbook for undergraduate pharmacy students and for microbiologists entering the pharmaceutical industry, introducing the aspects of general microbiology that impinge on that industry. Covers the biology of micro-organisms, antimicrobial agents, and microbial aspects of pharmaceutical processing. First published in 1977 and updated from the 1992 edition with new chapters on vaccination and immunization to act as a link to updated material on the principles of immunity and the production of immunological products. The chapter on antibiotic assays did not make the cut, because so few development have taken place in the field that the coverage in previous editions was deemed sufficient. Other chapters have been enlarged, streamlined, or rewritten by new authors to reflect current conditions.
