The 2nd Edition continues to provide a practical introduction to clinical immunology, covering essential theoretical principles along with serology techniques most commonly used in the lab. Now with case studies added, each chapter is a concentrated learning exercise, first presenting theory and then detailing procedures for simulated clinical testing. The instructive illustrations and practical laboratory exercises have also been updated and visually enhanced with the addition of color. "Case studies and review questions are excellent." -- Michele G. Harms, MS, MT(ASCP), WCA Hospital, Jamestown, New York "Use of red and black inks helps with emphasis and organization. Addition of chapter on molecular bio is a great improvement! Case studies with most chapters are a nice feature; review questions, chapter objectives and chapter summaries are helpful (and necessary). Updated and revised chapters also a plus. Addition of color plates nice too!" -- Brenda Kile, MA, MT(ASCP), CLS, York Hospital, York, Pennsylvania "This text is an excellent resource for clinical laboratory science students. It is brief and practical, which makes it a helpful supplement to my main text that covers immunology theory." -- Michelle Fahs, MT(ASCP), CLS(NCA), St. John's Mercy School of CLS, St. Louis, Missouri "Logically presented. Nicely organized. The learning objectives are clear. The diagrams, graphs, and tables throughout the text are illuminating and serve as valuable instructional aids. The author has performed an admirable job of presenting the subjective matter in a concise, down-to-earth manner. Primarily intended for medical laboratory students, it will be a precious addition to the reference book collection for clinical laboratories of any discipline or specialty. " -- Canadian Journal of Medical Laboratory Science 66:2004
