CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Designed to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today, The
Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series combines essential basic science with
insights into laboratory practice, demonstrating how an understanding of the
biology of disease is coupled with 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.
A new volume in this exciting series, Medical Microbiology examines
microbiology from the viewpoint of the biomedical scientist based in a
laboratory. Adopting a holistic approach to the study of pathogens and their
isolation and identification, it explains the basis of key laboratory
techniques as well as the scientific theory that underpins them. With a focus
on the many branches of medical microbiology--including bacteriology, mycology,
and virology--each process is covered in sufficient detail to ensure that
students understand how and why a result is generated and the pitfalls of the
processes involved. The text is enhanced by numerous case studies, examples,
and full color throughout. A Companion Website offers resources for students
and instructors, including a fully interactive digital microscope,
self-assessment activities, and video podcasts.
