Medical Bacteriology Summary


Medical Bacteriology: A Practical Approach by Edited by Peter Hawkey (Professor of Clinical and Public Health Bacteriology (University of Birmingham) and Honorary Consultant (West Midlands Public Health Laboratory, Heartlands Hospital, Birmingham))

The first edition of this book, published in 1995, established itself as the most popular practical guide to frequently used procedures in clinical microbiology laboratories. Because that book and this new edition describe methods in the order in which they would be encountered in the laboratory it is the perfect bench companion, both for the novice in clinical microbiology, and the eperienced microbiologist who needs to confirm a detail. This new edition, extensively up-dated, encapsulates the practical experience of a group of expert clinical microbiologists and scientists imparting valuable tips and solutions to both the methodology and interpretation of clinical microbiology results. The book represents a state of the art training aid for the diagnostic microbiology laboratory, and will prove to be an invaluable aid to microbiologists preparing for higher professional examinations such as membership of the Royal College of Pathologists and the American Board of Medical Microbiology.

Medical Bacteriology Reviews


This text gives comprehensive practical guidance and protocols for the diagnosis of bacterial infections ... the text contains a wealth of well presented accurate information. * MicroBiology Today *
It was a pleasure and nostalgic experience to review the second edition of this book, a text that has been a cornerstone for trainees in medical microbiology over the last 14 years. * The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists *
... the replacement of tables by new bold 'protocols' has improved the readability and clarity of layout of each chapter. * The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists *
This is an excellent book, containing the essential basic knowledge for trainees in medical microbiology. I would also recommend it to established consultants as a useful reference source and a means for quickly updating themselves on the practical aspects of diagnostic bacteriology. * The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists *
