For courses covering immunology in medical technology/clinical laboratory scientist (MT) and medical laboratory technician (MLT)/clinical laboratory technician programs; biotechnology programs; and medically oriented immunology courses at the undergraduate or graduate level.
This complete, up-to-date introduction to immunology takes students from basic vocabulary through common immunoassays to closer consideration of the specific diseases that require immunologic methods of diagnosis. CLINICAL IMMUNOLOGY AND SEROLOGY presents today’s newest professional techniques, thoroughly preparing students to work in modern clinical immunology laboratories, understand the data generated there, and apply the conclusions to deliver superior patient care. Full-color charts and illustrations engage students and enhance comprehension, and the text’s content has been extensively classroom-tested. It contains the most up-to-date information to accurately reflect what in done in the clinical immunology laboratory. Every chapter contains review and critical thinking questions, as well as a detailed case study.
