Summary

Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, and research into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible.

The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science.

The series:
DT Understands the complex roles of Biomedical Scientists in the modern practice of medicine.
DT Understands the development needs of employers and the Profession.
DT Addresses the need for understanding of a range of fundamental sciences in the context of Biomedicine.
DT Places the theoretical aspects of Biomedical Science in their practical context via clinical case studies.

Medical Microbiology covers a range of key laboratory techniques used in the diagnosis of important human diseases caused by microorganisms. From sample collection, through to analysis and laboratory investigation, the text covers a wide range of procedures and highlights how and why results are generated. The second edition has been expanded to cover a wider range of topics, and includes new chapters on parasitology, pathogenesis, and molecular diagnostics and investigation.
