The new 12th edition of Bailey & Scott’s Diagnostic Microbiology solidifies its reputation as the classic text in the field of microbiology. This new edition features the same comprehensive, authoritative content — and adds new and updated material throughout. The team of authors includes three well-respected clinical microbiologists, all of whom have experience both in the classroom and the clinical laboratory.

Key Features

- A respected author team consists of three well-respected clinical microbiologists, each of whom has experience both in the classroom and the clinical laboratory.
- Genera and Species to be Considered highlight all of the organisms to be discussed in each chapter, including the current name of the species as well as any previous names.
- Detailed hands-on procedures make the content more interesting and relevant by describing exactly what takes place in the micro lab.
- Convenient, easy-to-read tables summarize key information.
- A glossary of all of the terms is found at the back of the book for quick reference.

New to This Edition

- Three NEW chapters:
   *General Considerations and Applications of Information Provided in    *Bacterial Sections of Part III explains explains the criteria for organism inclusion and how it should be used.
   *Bacterial Identification Flow Charts and Schemes: A Guide to Part III includes gram reaction, shape, arrangement, atmosphere preferred, oxidase and catalase reactions, among other decision points for various pathogens, creating a visual method of identifying and cross referencing organisms.
   *Sentinel Laboratory Response to Bioterrorism
- A NEW section on clinical laboratory management
- More case studies help to develop critical thinking skills, with answers in an appendix.
- More photos of the major organisms have been included to help in identifying different organisms.
