Provide your students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the clinical lab! Textbook of Diagnostic Microbiology, 7th Edition uses a reader-friendly "building-block" approach to help students learn the essentials of diagnostic microbiology. Featuring full-color drawings and photos, this text shows how to to develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary to the accurate diagnosis of infectious diseases and the identification of infectious agents. This edition adds new content on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, along with the latest information on prevention, treatment modalities, and CDC guidelines.

    • Building-block approach encourages you to use previously learned information in mastering new material.
    • Full-color photographs and photomicrographs make it easier to understand and apply diagnostic microbiology concepts.
    • Case studies describe clinical and laboratory findings, offering opportunities to correlate observations with possible etiologic agents and to build critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
    • Hands-on procedures in the appendices describe techniques used in the lab setting.
    • Issues to Consider boxes list important points to think about while reading the chapter.
    • Case Checks in each chapter highlight specific points in the text and show how they connect to case studies.
    • Bolded key terms with abbreviations are listed at the beginning of each chapter, showing the most important and relevant terms in each chapter.
    • Learning Objectives at the beginning of each chapter supply you with a measurable learning outcome to achieve by completing the material.
    • Points to Remember sections at the end of each chapter provide a bulleted list of key concepts.
    • Learning Assessment Questions at the conclusion of each chapter help you to think critically and to evaluate how well you have mastered the material.
    • Agents of Bioterror and Forensic Microbiology chapter provides the most current information about these important topics.
    • Lab manual on the Evolve website reinforces concepts with real-life scenarios and review questions.
    • Glossary at the end of the book supplies you with a quick reference for looking up definitions of key terms.
    • NEW! Information about SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 is added to this edition.
    • NEW! Updated content is included throughout the book, and several chapters are reorganized and refocused.
    • NEW! Enterobacteriaceae chapter is updated.
