Fundamentals of Biomedical Science

  • Written from the point of view of a laboratory biomedical scientist, making it the ideal text for those studying microbiology as part of a biomedical science degree
  • Self-test and discussion questions, with self-test answers provided at the back of the book, encourage students to analyse the text and develop their problem solving skills
  • Frequent examples and case studies emphasise clinical relevance throughout the text

New to this Edition:

  • A new chapter on whole genome sequencing in microbiology presents student with cutting edge practice
  • An extensive revision of content on MALDI-TOF, air sampling, and food microbiology
  • New sections on congenital infections, syphilis, human papillomavirus infection and sample processing make the text an even more comprehensive resource for students
  • Extended coverage of the detection of antimicrobial resistance by molecular methods reflects the increasing use of molecular technologies to detect pathogens in clinical microbiology
  • Updated case studies, including new studies on progressive cognitive disease, high level resistance and faecal transplantation, firmly root the information presented in the context of clinical and biomedical practice
