Clear and accessible, this text addresses the fundamental knowledge and skills you need to work in a blood-banking laboratory. It integrates basic theory — genetics, immunology, and immunohematology — then adds practical, problem-solving exercises. Clinical scenarios and critical thinking exercises help you apply basic concepts to modern transfusion and blood-bank settings.
    • Experienced authors offer a practical "in the trenches" view of life in the laboratory.
    • A clinical application focus relates concepts to practice and offers examples of using theoretical information in the laboratory setting.
    • Coverage of quality control assurance and regulatory issues includes the "whys" in both reagents and equipment.
    • An entire chapter is devoted to basic genetics and immunology coverage.
    • Blood group systems are described in easy-to-follow, student-friendly terms.
    • Illustrations and tables help you understand critical information.
    • A two-color design brightens the text and makes it more reader-friendly.
    • Chapter outlines, review questions, learning objectives, and key terms are included in each chapter, highlighting and reinforcing important material.
    • Critical Thinking exercises ask you to draw conclusions based on a case study.
    • Chapter summaries include a paragraph, table, or box of the essential information.
    • NEW information reflects changes in the field, including:
      • Different types of DNA testing and uses
      • Automation impact and issues
      • Latest donor criteria from the AABB and the FDA
      • Hepatitis C and HIV NAT testing
      • West Nile testing
      • Bacterial contamination statistics and prevention
      • Bone marrow transplant blood use
      • Peripheral stem cell collection
      • Cord blood collection and use
    • More case studies, examples, and flow charts in the Antibody Detection and Identification chapter help to illustrate principles and practices.
    • Margin Notes are added throughout to reinforce key terms and procedures.
    • More review questions are added for thorough and efficient self-assessment.
    • Expanded Evolve resources include web links, ArchieMD animations, and additional study questions
  • Foundations: Basic Sciences and Reagents
