For the past 28 years, the Manual of Clinical Microbiology has been recognized as the benchmark -- the gold standard -- for excellence among diagnostic microbiology books. That heritage for quality continues with the publication of the sixth edition. Growing and evolving since the original edition first published in 1970, the Manual of Clinical Microbiology, 6th Edition (MCM6) once again provides all microbiologists, laboratorians, and infectious disease professionals with the definitive reference work for running an effective, state-of-the-art diagnostic laboratory. MCM6 again sets the standard for reliability and day-to-day utility as a reference work for all busy professionals in the diagnostic laboratory and infectious disease communities. MCM6 guides clinical microbiologists in the selection, performance, and interpretation of laboratory procedures. This resource focuses on the when and why of diagnostic procedures as well as the how.The Manual of Clinical Microbiology, 6th Edition, presents a more direct approach to organizing information -- with thorough but concise treatments of all the major areas of microbiology, including new microbial discoveries, changing diagnostic methods, and emerging therapeutic challenges facing clinicians. MCM6 has increased the emphasis given to infection control, the role of molecular diagnostic procedures ... and it contains the very latest and authoritative work on phylogenetic and nomenclatural changes so important in all areas of clinical microbiology.
