Clear and accessible, this text addresses the fundamental knowledge and skills you need to work in a blood-banking laboratory. It integrates basic theory - genetics, immunology, and immunohematology - then adds practical, problem-solving exercises. Clinical scenarios and critical thinking exercises help you apply basic concepts to modern transfusion and blood-bank settings.
  • Experienced authors offer a practical "in the trenches" view of life in the laboratory.
  • A clinical application focus relates concepts to practice and offers examples of using theoretical information in the laboratory setting.
  • Coverage of quality control assurance and regulatory issues includes the "whys" in both reagents and equipment.
  • An entire chapter is devoted to basic genetics and immunology coverage.
  • Blood group systems are described in easy-to-follow, student-friendly terms.
  • Illustrations and tables help you understand critical information.
  • A two-color design brightens the text and makes it more reader-friendly.
  • Chapter outlines, review questions, learning objectives, and key terms are included in each chapter, highlighting and reinforcing important material.
  • Critical Thinking exercises ask you to draw conclusions based on a case study.
  • Chapter summaries include a paragraph, table, or box of the essential information.

    • Different types of DNA testing and uses
    • Automation impact and issues
    • Latest donor criteria from the AABB and the FDA
    • Hepatitis C and HIV NAT testing
