Presenting the newest molecular diagnostic innovations in a single entire volume

The molecular diagnostics panorama has replaced dramatically because the final variation of Molecular Microbiology: Diagnostic rules and perform in 2011. With the unfold of molecular checking out and the improvement of latest applied sciences and their possibilities, laboratory pros and physicians greater than ever want a source to aid them navigate this swiftly evolving box.

Editors David Persing and Fred Tenover have introduced jointly a staff of skilled researchers and diagnosticians to replace this 3rd variation comprehensively, to offer the most recent advancements in molecular diagnostics within the aid of medical care and of uncomplicated and scientific learn, together with next-generation sequencing and whole-genome research. those updates are supplied in an easy-to-read structure and supported through a large diversity of functional recommendation, equivalent to picking the best kind and volume of a specimen, liberating and concentrating the ambitions, and getting rid of inhibitors.

Molecular Microbiology: Diagnostic ideas and Practice

  • Presents the newest easy medical conception underlying molecular diagnostics
  • Offers validated and confirmed functions of molecular diagnostics for the analysis of infectious illnesses, together with point-of-care testing
  • Illustrates and summarizes key techniques and strategies with exact figures and tables
  • Discusses rising applied sciences, together with using molecular typing tools for real-time monitoring of infectious outbreaks and antibiotic resistance
  • Advises at the most recent qc and caliber coverage measures
  • Explores the expanding possibilities and services of knowledge technology

Molecular Microbiology: Diagnostic rules and perform is a textbook for molecular diagnostics classes which could even be utilized by a person concerned with diagnostic try out choice and interpretation. it's also an invaluable reference for laboratories and as a continuous schooling source for physicians.
