Completely updated and in full color, this 3rd edition covers all the essentials of diagnostic microbiology. A logical building-block approach supplies what students need to know in an easy-to-use, memorable format. Material is presented in a progressive manner, from basic principles and concepts to systematic identification of etiologic agents of infectious diseases, promoting greater understanding and the development of problem-solving skills. Part I of the text explains basic principles and concepts, setting up a firm foundation in microbiology. Building on these basics, Part II highlights methods for the identification of significant isolates. Part III uses an organ system approach to discuss the laboratory diagnosis of infectious diseases - with a focus on the most medically significant and commonly encountered diseases.
