The latest molecular diagnostic techniques presented in one comprehensive volume. Offers a broad range of practical advice, such as determining the appropriate type and quantity of a specimen, releasing and concentrating the targets, and eliminating inhibitors. Examines techniques to detect individual pathogens and the growing trend toward a systems approach for diagnosing infectious diseases, with chapters covering gastrointestinal infections, sepsis, meningitis, and encephalitis. Features updated information on molecular tests, laboratory operations, molecular typing, and new technologies for nucleic acid detection; plus, the latest information on quality control, quality assurance, and laboratory design to help ensure a safe, efficient molecular laboratory. This title is published by the American Society of Microbiology Press and distributed by Taylor and Francis in rest of world territories.
