Description

Biomedical Science Practice covers key professional skills alongside an introduction to core laboratory techniques, providing a strong foundation for further study for beginning biomedical science students.

  • A blend of science theory and biomedical science practice make this series ideal for those seeking both the knowledge and skills to become proficient Biomedical Scientists
  • Self-test, case study, and discussion questions, with answers provided at the back of the book, encourage students to analyse the text and develop their problem solving skills
  • The book is augmented by an Online Resource Centre, which includes an interactive digital microscope, video interviews with practicing biomedical scientists, and 'in the lab' footage showing biomedical science in practice
  • The text is written by an experienced author team, including both practitioners and educators

New to this edition

  • More case studies have been added, further emphasizing the link between theory and practice, and helping students to gain an understanding of the diagnostic process.
  • The professional practice chapters have been updated in line with recent guidelines and policies.
  • New video techniques have been added to the website, and linked directly to the relevant points in the text.
