Filled with easy-to-follow explanations and loads of examples and sample problems, Mathematics for the Clinical Laboratory, 3rd Edition is the perfect resource to help you master the clinical calculations needed for each area of the laboratory. Content is divided into three sections: a review of math and calculation basics, coverage of particular areas of the clinical laboratory (including immunohematology and microbiology), and statistical calculations. This new third edition also includes a new full-color design, additional text notes, formula summaries, and the latest procedures used in today’s laboratories to ensure you are fully equipped with the mathematical understanding and application skills needed to succeed in professional practice.

    • Examples of calculations for each different type of calculation are worked out in the chapters, step by step to show readers exactly what they’re expected to learn and how to perform each type of calculation.
    • Practice problems at the ends of each chapter act as a self-assessment tool to help readers determine what they need to review.
    • Example problems and answers throughout the text can also be used as templates for solving laboratory calculations.
