The gold standard for the selection, collection, and transport of clinical microbiological samples.

The face of infectious diseases has changed since the 2nd edition of A Guide to Specimen Management in Clinical Microbiology was published in 1999. Despite improved surveillance and vaccinations, tens of millions of people visit physicians annually for a possible microbial or parasitic infection. Identifying the infectious agent in a patient remains a top priority, and proper identification begins with careful collection, appropriate packaging and transport, and responsible reporting of patient specimens.

For these reasons, A Guide to Specimen Management in Clinical Microbiology is as essential as ever. The book is divided into four sections and features tips and words of wisdom that come directly from experts in the field.

Because patient care is a team effort, all members of the healthcare team physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, specimen collectors, and laboratorians will benefit greatly from reading this book.
