From the Back Cover:

Everything you need to make the most of spot and screen tests

Spot Test Analysis demonstrates hundreds of valuable applications for the simple spot and screen test. Whether screening for cholesterol in blood, conducting antibody-based field tests for explosives, or even doing preliminary examinations, this laboratory reference book contains the detailed procedural information necessary for conducting rapid, on-the-spot chemical tests.

This new edition is revised and updated to provide the most useful information in the field. Among the important applications featured in this broad, far-reaching book are:
* Spot tests in clinical analysis
* Field and spot tests used in geochemistry and geochemical exploration
* Tests for detection and evaluation of air pollution
* Water quality screening for organic and inorganic materials
* Rapid screen tests of soils and plant tissues
* Screen tests for food adulteration and food composition

Spot Test Analysis, Second Edition is an indispensable resource for professionals in forensics, geochemistry, medicine, and public health.

Quick, inexpensive, and increasingly more sophisticated, the simple spot test has transformed the ways analysts screen for chemicals. In the past few decades, technological advancements have permitted enormous amplification of the resulting signal. This progression, coupled with a trend toward simplification, has enabled professionals in forensics, geochemistry, medicine, and public health to answer analytical questions with minimum cost and time.

Spot Test Analysis, Second Edition is a practical and far-reaching laboratory reference book. In addition to explaining the contemporary uses of spot and screen tests, this text describes the most up-to-date techniques for academic, medical, and commercial applications.

In this new edition, Dr. Ervin Jungreis provides detailed procedural information. While the screen and spot tests discussed here do not attempt to stand in for necessary complex analytical investigations, they do demonstrate that rapid methods are sufficient to register gross deviation from a norm and establish a conclusive negative.

This revised and updated Second Edition is as thorough in its treatment of techniques and applications as its predecessor. It provides many new wet and dry immunoassay procedures, such as tests for cholesterol and HDL, HIV and HSV, drugs, and explosives. Whole sections are devoted to spot testing in geochemistry, detecting toxins in air pollution, testing water for inorganic matter, and analyzing diagnostic test strips for foods, such as diethylene glycol in wine, saxitoxin in shellfish, and antibiotics in milk.
