YUM! DIGESTING ASM'S FOOD CONTENTMicrobes can be used to create delicious foods from fermentative processes; on the flipside, microbes can cause foodborne illness. Check out everything ASM has on food!
In coordination with the CDC and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL), the ASM has updated protocols designed to offer Laboratory Response Network (LRN) Sentinel Level Clinical Laboratories standardized, practical methods and techniques to rule out microorganisms suspected as agents of bioterrorism, or to refer specimens to public health laboratories for confirmation.
