Known as the #1 bench reference for practicing microbiologists, Bailey & Scott's Diagnostic Microbiology provides useful and easily accessible in-depth information, with step-by-step instructions for all procedures. This edition features more than 20 NEW chapters plus updated material on the newest advances and the latest trends in clinical microbiology. Significantly, this is the first edtion not written by MDs but rather by lab people, so the perspective is different and much more appropriate as a reference for lab techs.

Key features:

  • NEW! Reader-friendly chapters cover groups of related organisms rather than addressing all at once, including the parasitology, mycology, and virology chapters.
  • Hands-on procedures include step-by-step instructions, full-color photos, and expected results.
  • Case studies help improve critical thinking skills.
  • Convenient, easy-to-read tables summarize key information.
  • Detailed, full-color illustrations aid comprehension and help you visualize concepts.

The course is divided into four sections of 12 contact hours each.

Section A (Chapters 1-19): Covers basic medical microbiology, laboratory safety and specimen management; diagnostic methods for microbial detection and identification, including microscopy, nucleic-acid based testing, immunochemical methods and serological diagnosis of infectious diseases; principles of antimicrobial action and resistance; antimicrobial susceptibility testing; principles of bacterial identification and characterization; characteristics of certain gram-positive and gram-negative cocci, gram-positive bacilli, and partially acid-fast bacilli.

Section B (Chapters 20-40): Covers gram-negative bacilli and coccobacilli, including gram-negative bacilli that are optimally recovered on special media; gram-negative cocci.

Section C (Chapters 41-58): Covers anaerobic bacteriology and overview of anaerobic organisms; mycobacteria; obligate intracellular and non-culturable agents; cell-wall deficient bacteria; spirochetes. Also covers laboratory methods for diagnosis of parasitic infections and protozoan, nematode, cestode and trematode parasites.
