Reviews

"This book covers the biomedical science practice subject area in a very engaging, applied, and logical format. It is easy to read, the learning objectives and case studies complement the subject area within each chapter, and the figures and diagrams keep the reader interested. This is the best book on the market for anyone studying biomedical science or related fields." - Khalid Rahman, Professor of Physiological Biochemistry, Liverpool John Moores University

"Biomedical Science Practice clearly explains a number of commonly used laboratory techniques, but is also an excellent reference source for our Personal and Professional Development module as it thoroughly covers topics such as CPD and industry regulatory bodies. The chapter on Health and Safety is a particular strength and provides valuable information about legal requirements in the workplace as well as risk assessment procedures that are relevant to both biological and chemical laboratory work. I do not think there is another book that provides the same range of information in one place." - Chris Workman, Programme Manager for Biomedical & Pharmaceutical Sciences, University Centre Leeds
