PRODUCTS AND OBJECTS OF EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT
Actuality. Sanitary microbiology is a science based on the detection of risks associated with the production, manufacture and consumption of foods, air and water. It has been established that environment facts determine the survival, growing and inactivation of the microorganisms. These risks are commonly associated with the presence of microbiological hazards and represent a serious problem from the Public Health viewpoint. The types of microorganisms’s presents in products will depend of the way they have been elaborated, transportated, stored, taking or prepared before eating.
The study of the sanitary-bacteriological of objects of external environment is needed for warning of development of infections, understanding of origin of infection. All of it is very topically lately. So for example, the absence of coliforms in a water sample does not give absolute assurance of the absence of pathogenic organisms, but it is a good indication. Certain other types of microbial pathogens such as viruses (hepatitis A, poliomyelitis, Norovirus) and protozoa (Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba) can be present in the absence of bacterial indicators. Experience has shown that disinfection of water supplies to achieve zero coliform counts has generally been successful at preventing water-borne disease. Therefore every specialist must know the basic ways of transmission of pathogens, to know the basic bacteriological indicators of contamination of objects of external environment, able to estimate results them sanitary-bacteriological examination.
Primary objective: to be able to conduct and evaluate the sanitary-bacteriological research of water, soil, air, food products.
