Description

Leading experts from all over the world present an overview of the use of enzymes in industry for:

- the production of bulk products, such as glucose, or fructose
- food processing and food analysis
- laundry and automatic dishwashing detergents
- the textile, pulp and paper and animal feed industries
- clinical diagnosis and therapy
- genetic engineering.

The book also covers identification methods of new enzymes and the optimization of known ones, as well as the regulatory aspects for their use in industrial applications.

Up to date and wide in scope, this is a chance for non-specialists to acquaint themselves with this rapidly growing field.

'...The quality...is so great that there is no hesitation in recommending it as ideal reading for any student requiring an introduction to enzymes. ...Enzymes in Industry - should command a place in any library, industrial or academic, where it will be frequently used.'

""Enzymes in Industry ist eine ausgezeichnete Einführung in die angewandte Enzymologie und richtet sich an Leser, die nicht oder nur wenig mit der Materie vertraut sind...Das Buch ist auf dem neuesten Stand und trotz der Beteiligung von fast 50 Autoren leicht zu lesen....Naturwissenschaftler, die sich mit Enzymen beschäftigen, sollten dieses Buch in ihrer Bibliothek haben. Das Buch wird aber auch für den Marketing-Spezialisten, der sich einen Überblick über gegenwärtige und künftige Anwendungen von Enzymen innerhalb und außerhalb der Lebensmittelindustrie machen will, von großem Nutzen sein.""
