What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

" Zusammenfassend handelt es sich um ein hervorragendes Lehr-, Lese- und Arbeitsbuch, das die Laboratoriumsmedizin als diagnostische Disziplin vermittelt. Fur den Preis von 62,90 Euro erha? lt der Leser viel faktisches Material und wird das Buch gern und wiederholt konsultieren. Darin ko? nnte sich ein Risiko verbergen, denn das (preisfreundliche) Paperback-Format wird nicht ewig halten. Vielleicht gibt es dann aber auch schon eine neue Auflage"
