Submitted by jo on Thu, 06/29/2017 - 9:33am

This resource is intended for those "engaged in microbial analysis of clinical specimens," which is primarily clinical laboratory scientists. Laboratory medicine practitioners and infectious disease practitioners, whether students, residents, fellows, or in practice, also would find it valuable. It is also useful to other detail-oriented staff including nurses, practitioners, and allied health providers.

The Clinical Microbiology Procedures Handbook provides step-by-step protocols and descriptions that enable clinical microbiologists and laboratory staff personnel to perform all analyses, including appropriate quality control recommendations, from the receipt of the specimen through processing, testing, interpretation, presentation of the final report, and subsequent consultation.
