A new ninth edition of the internationally-recognized reference book that sets the standard in the fast-changing field of clinical microbiology
For over thirty-five years, the Manual of Clinical Microbiology has been the touchstone for generations of clinical microbiologists, laboratory technologists, and infectious disease specialists. Now comes the most complete version yet–the updated and expanded ninth edition. As the field of clinical microbiology continues to change, the ninth edition of the Manual of Clinical Microbiology has been revised and rewritten to incorporate the most current clinical and laboratory information. In two volumes, 11 sections, and 152 chapters, it offers accessible and authoritative descriptions of important diseases, laboratory diagnosis, and therapeutic testing of all clinically significant bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. In addition, the taxonomy, biology, habitats, and clinical significance of virtually all organisms that colonize or cause disease in humans are discussed. Compiling the latest microbiology and clinical information, this landmark edition will be an invaluable reference. Clear, concise, and replete with practical advice, the two volumes bring together the latest scientific developments in clinical microbiology, clinical practice, human diseases, and diagnostic testing. For anyone who works in the field–whether in a university, laboratory, or hospital–this continues to be the one reference book you simply must have. Additionally, the Manual defines the standard for operating a state-of-the-art diagnostic laboratory. From when and how to conduct tests to interpreting laboratory results, the Manual is the perfect reference. No other resource offers such extensive, up-to-date information on a wealth of new topics, procedures, and discoveries.
