The editors have brought together, under the aegis of the International Society of Animal Clinical Biochemistry (ISACB), the knowhow and expertise of many pre-eminent scientists. The latest issues in food safety, quality assurance and detection techniques of deleterious residues are discussed. Every contribution contains abstracts in English, French, Spanish and German.
