Overview

Providing a reader-friendly "building-block" approach to the essentials of diagnostic microbiology, this accessible, full-color text helps you develop the problem-solving skills necessary for success in the clinical setting. This updated edition has new content on nanomedicine and HIV/AIDS and the immunocompromised patient, including the latest information on prevention, treatment modalities, and CDC guidelines. Updated photos offer new examples of automated lab instruments, while case studies, review questions, and learning objectives present information in an easy-to-learn way.


• A building-block approach
encourages you to use previously learned information to sharpen your critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
Full-color design, with many full-color photomicrographs, prepares you for the reality of diagnostic microbiology.
Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter supply you with a measurable outcome to achieve by completing the material.
A case study at the beginning of each chapter provides you with the opportunity to form your own questions and answers through discussion points.
Issues to Consider boxes encourage you to analyze important points.
Bolded key terms at the beginning of each chapter equip you with a list of the most important and relevant terms in each chapter.
Points to Remember sections at the end of each chapter identify key concepts in a quick-reference, bulleted format.
Hands-on procedures describe exactly what takes place in the micro lab, making content more interesting and relevant.
Learning assessment questions at the conclusion of each chapter allow you to evaluate how well you have mastered material.
Agents of bioterrorism chapter furnishes you with the most current information about this hot topic.
Glossary of key terms at the end of the book supplies you with a quick reference for looking up definitions.


• NEW! Nanomedicine and HIV/AIDS and the immunocompromised patient content
supplies you with the latest information on prevention, treatment modalities, and CDC guidelines.
NEW! Updated photos familiarize you with the equipment you’ll use in the lab.
NEW! Case Checks throughout each chapter tie content to case studies for improved understanding.
NEW! An editable and printable lab manual provides additional opportunities to learn course content using real-life scenarios with questions to reinforce concepts.
Review questions for each learning objective help you learn to think critically about the information in each chapter, enhancing your comprehension and retention of material.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Roberta B. Carey
This is a new textbook addressing the basics in the practice of clinical microbiology and the identification of microorganisms causing infectious diseases. This text was designed for the entry level laboratory scientist to provide a firm theoretical foundation in microbiology and the skills required in the clinical laboratory. These objectives are worthwhile because the educational background of students varies widely. The target audience is the medical technologist learning practical skills to work in a diagnostic laboratory. It is also appropriate for pathology residents and infectious disease fellows who are doing a rotation in clinical microbiology. There are a few minor errors in the material resulting from generalizations and the lack of space to discuss certain concepts in detail. Most contributors are well known in their fields of expertise and cover the material very thoroughly. The book is written in a user-friendly manner with colorful topic headers and chart titles. Topics are divided into short sections for quick reference and easy reading. There are no long paragraphs of text to wade thorough to find the area of interest. The most outstanding feature of the book is the extensive illustrations and high quality photographs to demonstrate the appearance of an organism, a test result, or an instrument under discussion. Because the text is more than 1,000 pages, the well-arranged table of contents is a critical feature. The majority of the references are review articles written in the last 10 years. This textbook would be a welcome addition to any clinical microbiology lab for the continued training of new personnel and the reeducation of current staff. It covers multiple facetsof the microbiology lab from biosafety practices and quality improvement to new technologies such as PCR. The approach is practical with sample charts and tables ready to use in one's own laboratory.

This is a comprehensive textbook of diagnostic microbiology. The purpose is to provide a student-friendly ""building-block"" approach to diagnostic microbiology. This book would be useful for medical technology students, practicing clinical laboratory scientists, clinical microbiologists, and educators. This is a comprehensive textbook of diagnostic microbiology, ranging from basic theoretical concepts to actual practical tips for the bench-level microbiologist. There are excellent diagnostic algorithms for identification of various bacteria, and nicely illustrated sections on newer rapid antigen detection tests and ""emergent"" molecular-biology based technologies. A truly outstanding feature of this book is the wonderful collection of photographs of bacteria stains, various colorimetric biochemical reactions, and representative growth of various bacteria on different media. The chapter on ""Microscopic Examination of Infected Materials"" alone may be worth the price of this entire book, given the unbelievably comprehensive collection of photomicrographs demonstrating a wide variety of bacteria in various specimens with different stains. The captions to these photomicrographs are also extraordinarily well written and of high educational value, clearly detailing how the original observations -- depending on specimen source -- influence the final interpretation. This is a great reference text to have ready at hand on the bookshelf for everyday use in a clinical microbiology laboratory. It is also a very nice textbook from which to teach a course focused on the principles and applications of diagnostic microbiology.
