Clinical Immunodiagnostics: Laboratory Principles and Practices

Jones & Bartlett Learning

Clinical Immunodiagnostics: Lab Principles and Practice is a forward-focused text that reimagines the usual classroom study by focusing on the theoretical principles underlying different diagnostic tests performed in the clinical lab. The text cultivates an understanding of clinical immunology, serology, and immunodiagnostics for use in the diagnostic clinical lab and discusses conceptual overlaps with blood banking (immunohematology), transfusion medicine, infectious disease, cellular phenotyping, and oncology as they pertain to immunology-based clinical diagnostics.
