Benson's Microbiological Applications : Laboratory Manual in General Microbiology, Short Version - 10th edition

Benson`s Microbiological Applications : Laboratory Manual in General Microbiology, Short Version (ISBN10: 0072992727; ISBN13: 9780072992724)
ISBN13: 978-0072992724
ISBN10: 0072992727

Summary: The classic resource for undergraduate microbiology laboratory courses just keeps getting better. The self-contained, clearly illustrated exercises and four-color format make Microbiological Applications: Laboratory Manual in General Microbiology the ideal lab manual. Appropriate for either a majors or non-majors lab course, this lab manual assumes no prior organic chemistry course has been taken. New Features

  • Content has been updated throughout, especially in Part 8: Identification of Unknown Bacteria, and in Part 11: Medical Microbiology and Immunology, to include the latest research. Also updated was Exercise 60: A Synthetic Epidemic, in keeping with lab safety requirements.
  • One of the major changes to the 10/e is that the lab report sections have been extensively revised - all of the lab reports have been updated with new questions.
  • The introductory section for phase-contrast microscopy has been revised with a new discussion of the optics and workings of the phase contrast microscope. Exercise 3
  • The exercises on evaluation of antibiotics, antiseptics, and disinfectants have been revised to include definitions of antimicrobials, antibiotics, antiseptics, and disinfectants. Exercises 33 and 34
  • A new exercise on lysozyme employs egg white as a source of this enzyme to demonstrate that lysozyme breaks down peptidoglycan in bacterial cells, making the bacteria prone to lysis. This exercise will demonstrate the difference in sensitivity of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria to lysozyme as a result of the presence of the outer membrane that surrounds Gram-negative cells. Exercise 31
  • The exercises on the identification of an unknown bacterium have been rewritten and reorganized into exercises that separate the tests into categories based on fermentation, oxidation, degradative and hydrolytic enzymes, and multiple test media. The O/F glucose test has been added to the fermentation tests and a complete description the various reactions for Kleiger's iron agar is included. 38, 39, 40
  • The classification of bacteria in the tenth edition is consistent with that found in the first edition of Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology. 52, 53, and 54
