Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Stephen E. Kahn, PhD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This book is a comprehensive overview of clinical laboratory instrumentation that explains and illustrates basic analytical principles and describes currently available clinical laboratory instrumentation.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a broad-based understanding of clinical laboratory instrumentation principles and applications.
Audience: The text is principally written for the clinical laboratory science student. It could also be used by other students at the graduate and postgraduate level as a companion text. Practitioners may find the listing of instrumentation that is provided, with practical details, more useful than the rest of the text unless they are engaged in educational activities.
Features: This is an attractive, soft-covered book. Illustrations are good, although some chapters could benefit from more. Each chapter has learning objectives, key word definitions, and review questions. The listing of currently available equipment, with practical information, is a nice feature, although this may tend to be outdated within a few years.
Assessment: The authors have succeeded in creating a useful addition to the clinical laboratory textbook field. The dual objectives of including educational material relating to clinical laboratory instrumentation as well as practical information on current equipment make this a useful book. Most students of clinical laboratory science as well as many practitioners would find this text worthwhile.
