Size: 26 MB
With vivid, color illustrations, this text explores techniques for interpreting macroscopic morphologies and the results of specific diagnostic tests. In one comprehensive volume, it covers all major divisions of diagnostic microbiology: bacteriology, virology, parasitology, and mycology. All areas of critical importance to diagnostic microbiology specimen handling, rapid testing methods, immunological testing, and antimicrobial susceptibility testing are explored and illustrated. Additionally, a special introductory section based on OSHA blood-borne pathogen regulations discusses the techniques, clothing and equipment used in the lab.
