This valuable and much needed reference/text provides details on proper communication between the lab and its clients, the rationale associated with the specimen requirements, and the correct procedures for specimen collection and management in the clinical microbiology laboratory. The first section looks at the premises on which quality microbiology diagnostic processes depend. It outlines the criteria that must be followed by the lab in the interest of good lab practice. The next section details the reasons why the lab must be involved in each part of the testing process, including the preanalytical, analytical and postanalytical steps. The rationale for stringent standards for specimen quality is also outlined. Section III gives instruction on how to select, collect, store and transport specimens for microbiological analysis. The last section contains excellent summary charts for quick reference for bacteriology, virology, mycology and parasitology specimens that can be used as a quick reference guide to answer most questions regarding the lab needs for a particular specimen.39. 41. 42.
