Answers to what makes an instrument reliable and maintainable frequently lie outside the manufacturers' manuals. These sometimes are revised procedures, test methods, or physical modifications. This book provides complete information for 26 widely used instruments including pumps and valves used in process control. This includes application, principle of operation, accuracy and repeatability, manufacture's options, installation, designer checklist, maintenance and calibration, deficiencies, and references. It is a guide to for the selection, application, and maintenance of primary elements and final control elements.
Ein Nachweis der Verlasslichkeit analytischer Daten ist nur mit entsprechenden Qualitatssicherungsma?nahmen moglich. Dies gilt fur die Umwelt- oder Lebensmitteluberwachung, die Werkstoffanalytik, aber auch die Bioanalytik in der biotechnologischen Industrie oder im medizinischen Bereich (In-vitro-Diagnostik, Point-of-Care-Testing). Die Autoren stellen dafur ein bewahrtes, durchgangiges Konzept vor, das auf statistischen Methoden beruht und von der Entwicklung einer analytischen Methode bis zu ihrer routinema?igen Anwendung reicht. Die zweite, komplett uberarbeitete Auflage enthalt neue Kapitel, unter anderem zu dem aktuellen Thema "Me?unsicherheit" und wird durch eine CD mit praktischen Rechenbeispielen abgerundet. Bezuglich der einschlagigen Normung reprasentiert das Buch den neuesten Stand. Rezensenten urteilen uber dieses Buch: Laborleiter oder Behordenvertreter finden eine verla?liche Anleitung und Nachschlagequelle. Daruber hinaus ist das Buch ein Lehr- und Ubungsbuch fur alle im Labor Tatigen. (Chemische Rundschau) Als Autoren konnten ausgewiesene Fachleute dieses Gebietes gewonnen werden. Das inzwischen fur jedes analytische Labor unverzichtbare Konzept der Qualitatssicherung wird anhand von 4 Phasen behandelt ... Didaktisch besonders geschickt sind die zahlreichen "durchgerechneten" Beispiele mit Zwischenergebnissen, Tabellen und Checklisten. Es handelt sich um eine unentbehrliche Informationsquelle, die gerade unter dem Gesichtspunkt der "guten Laborpraxis" (GLP) in jede analytische Bibliothek gehort. (Klinisches Labor) Das Buch ist ubersichtlich angelegt und stellt fur den Analytiker eine verla?liche Anleitung und Nachschlagequelle zur Qualitatssicherung dar. Daruber hinaus eignet es sich fur alle im analytischen Labor Tatigen als ein Lehr- und Ubungsbuch. (Die Nahrung -- Food) Jeder Analytiker mu? sich mit den Methoden der Qualitatssicherung beschaftigen. Das vorliegende Lehr- und Ubungsbuch kann ihm dabei eine wertvolle Hilfe sein.

This new manual is an indispensable working lab guide and reference for water/wastewater quality analysis. Based on procedures from "Standard Methods" and "Methods for Chemical Analysis of Water and Waste (EPA)," and other pertinent references the Water and Wastewater Examination Manual is an excellent complement to these references-that you will want to keep at your fingertips. Written especially for use by water quality laboratory technicians and water/wastewater operators, managers and supervisors-who will use this practical manual every day. Procedures are included for parameters frequently used in water quality analysis.
Microbiological Examination Methods of Food and Water is an illustrated laboratory manual that provides an overview of current standard microbiological culture methods for the examination of food and water, adhered to by renowned international organizations, such as ISO, AOAC, APHA, FDA and FSIS/USDA. It includes methods for the enumeration of indicator microorganisms of general contamination, indicators of hygiene and sanitary conditions, sporeforming, spoilage fungi and pathogenic bacteria. Every chapter begins with a comprehensive, in-depth and updated bibliographic reference on the microorganism(s) dealt with in that particular section of the book. The latest facts on the taxonomic position of each group, genus or species are given, as well as clear guidelines on how to deal with changes in nomenclature on the internet. All chapters provide schematic comparisons between the methods presented, highlighting the main differences and similarities. This allows the user to choose the method that best meets his/her needs. Moreover, each chapter lists validated alternative quick methods, which, though not described in the book, may and can be used for the analysis of the microorganism(s) dealt with in that particular chapter. The didactic setup and the visualization of procedures in step-by-step schemes allow the user to quickly perceive and execute the procedure intended. This compendium will serve as an up-to-date practical companion for laboratory professionals, technicians and research scientists, instructors, teachers and food and water analysts. Alimentary engineering, chemistry, biotechnology and biology (under)graduate students specializing in food sciences will also find the book beneficial. It is furthermore suited for use as a practical/laboratory manual for graduate courses in Food Engineering and Food Microbiology.
