Perfect your lab skills with the essential text for diagnostic microbiology! Bailey & Scott’s Diagnostic Microbiology, 15th Edition Is known as the #1 bench reference for practicing microbiologists and as the preeminent text for students in clinical laboratory science programs. With hundreds of full-color illustrations and step-by-step methods for procedures, this text provides a solid, basic understanding of diagnostic microbiology and also covers more advanced techniques such as matrix-assisted laser desorption time-of-flight mass spectrometry. Written by noted CLS educator Dr. Patricia Tille, Diagnostic Microbiology has everything you need to get accurate lab test results in class and in clinical practice.

    • More than 800 high-quality, full-color illustrations help you visualize concepts.
    • Expanded sections on parasitology, mycology, and virology allow you to use just one book, eliminating the need to purchase other microbiology textbooks for these topics. 
    • Hands-on procedures show exactly what takes place in the lab, including step-by-step methods, photos, and expected results.
    • Case studies allow you to apply your knowledge to diagnostic scenarios and to develop critical thinking skills.
    • Genera and Species boxes provide handy, at-a-glance summaries at the beginning of each organism chapter. 
    • Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter provide measurable outcomes to achieve by completing the chapter material.
    • A glossary defines terms at the back of the book and on the Evolve companion website.
    • New! Updated content includes infectious disease trends and new illustrations such as culture plate images of real specimens, complex gram stains, lactophenol cotton blue microscopy, and more.
    • NEW COVID-19 information has been added.
    • UPDATED topics include the Human Microbiome Project, expanded MALDI-TOF applications and molecular diagnostics in conjunction with traditional microbiology, additional streps, and significant news in mycology.
    • EXPANDED glossary defines terms on the Evolve companion website.
