    DescriptionLong considered the definitive work in its field, this new edition presents all the principles and practices readers need for a solid grounding in all aspects of clinical microbiology--bacteriology, mycology, parasitology, and virology. Tests are presented according to the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (formerly NCCLS) format. This extensively revised edition includes practical guidelines for cost-effective, clinically relevant evaluation of clinical specimens including extent of workup and abbreviated identification schemes. New chapters cover the increasingly important areas of immunologic and molecular diagnosis. Clinical correlations link microorganisms to specific disease states. Over 600 color plates depict salient identification features of organisms.

    Review quote
    Doody's Book Review Service, Christopher J. Papasian, PhD, D(ABMM) -- "I love this book, and always have. I used the first edition to help me learn microbiology in 1980 and thought it was outstanding then. Each subsequent version grew in quality, comprehensiveness, and page." Doody's Book Review Service, Christopher J. Papasian, PhD, D(ABMM) -- "This book will be of significant value to any individual who requires a working knowledge of diagnostic microbiology."
