K-State host to workshop on rapid methods to detect microorganisms in food

Kansas State University once again is host to a noted microbiology workshop that helps the scientists who test food and other samples for microorganisms. K-State's 29th annual Rapid Methods and Automation in Microbiology workshop will be June 19-26.

The workshop, now in its 29th year, has served more than 4,000 participants from across the United States and 60 countries.

Rapid methods and automation are a dynamic area in applied microbiology dealing with the study of improved methods in the isolation, early detection, characterization and enumeration of microorganisms and their products in clinical, food, industrial and environmental samples. The K-State workshop will focus on the practical application of conventional and new commercial systems of rapid identification of microorganisms from medical specimens, foods, water and the environment.

Workshop participants will receive intensive theoretical and hands-on training in microbiological automation. Lectures and classes will be at the Clarion Hotel in Manhattan and at Call Hall and the College of Veterinary Medicine complex on the K-State campus.

The award-winning workshop is under the direction of K-State's Daniel Y.C. Fung, an internationally known authority in the field and professor of animal sciences and industry and food science. It also is offered as a class worth two graduate credits through the K-State department of animal sciences and industry and K-State's Food Science Institute.
