About this book
Taking advantage of the many major advances that have occurred since their groundbreaking first edition was published, William B. Coleman and Gregory J. Tsongalis have updated and expanded their highly praised tutorial guide to molecular diagnostic techniques to include not only improved traditional methods, but also totally new molecular technologies, some not yet in routine use. The authors offer cutting-edge molecular diagnostics for genetic disease, human cancers, infectious diseases, and identity testing, as well as new insights into the question of quality assurance in the molecular diagnostics laboratory. Additional chapters address other technologies found in the clinical laboratory that are complementary to molecular diagnostic methodologies, and also discuss genetic counseling and the ethical and social issues involved with nucleic acid testing.
Authoritative and state-of-the-art, Molecular Diagnostics: For the Clinical Laboratorian, 2nd Edition is the essential textbook of choice for anyone working in molecular diagnostics and who wants to remain current with this rapidly changing field.
