Develop your students’ lab skills with the gold standard in microbiology! Serving as both the #1 bench reference for practicing microbiologists and as a favorite text for students in clinical laboratory science programs, Bailey & Scott’s Diagnostic Microbiology, 14th Edition covers all the information and critical thinking practice students need for effective laboratory testing. This new edition features hundreds step-by-step procedures, updated visuals, new case studies, and updated material on the latest trends and equipment in clinical microbiology — including automation, automated streaking, MALDI-TOF, and incubator microscopes. This reference also comes with a significantly revised lab manual, and expanded sections on parasitology, mycology, and virology. It’s everything your students need to get quality lab results in your class and beyond!

    • More than 800 detailed, full-color illustrations aid comprehension and help in visualizing concepts.
    • Expanded sections on parasitology, mycology, and virology eliminate the need to purchase separate books on this material.
    • General and Species boxes in the organism chapters highlight the important topics that will be discussed in the chapter.
    • Case studies provide the opportunity to apply information to a variety of diagnostic scenarios, and help improve decision-making and critical thinking skills.
    • Hands-on procedures include step-by-step instructions, full-color photos, and expected results.
    • A glossary of terms is found at the back of the book for quick reference.
    • Learning objectives begin each chapter, offering a measurable outcome to achieve by the completing the material.
