This volume, No. 27 in the Society for Applied Bacteriology's Technical Series, considers the methodology for studying the mechanisms of action of chemical biocides. Techniques range from whole cell to isolated enzyme studies, and cover areas of activity assessment, resistance, biocide combination, biofilm production, and rapid biocide activity assessment. Emphasis has been placed on antimicrobial agents largely employed for control of contamination rather than the treatment of infection (although some medically useful chemical agents are discussed). As such, the biocides referred to are principally of the non-antibiotic type and include agents used for preservation and disinfection in a wide variety of areas including the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic, environmental, service, construction, manufacturing and engineering industries.
