We have shared a review and a free pdf download link (Google Drive) of Lab Manual and Workbook in Microbiology: Applications to Patient Care PDF 12th Edition by Josephine Morello and Paul Granato and Verna Morton.
This lab manual emphasizes the basic principles of diagnostic microbiology for students preparing to enter the allied health field. Students are led through a series of exercises that allow them to learn basic microbiology techniques and practice safety in the laboratory and hospital environment. It is primarily oriented toward meeting the interests and needs of those who will be directly involved in patient care and wish to learn how microbiological principles should be applied.
Features of Lab Manual and Workbook in Microbiology.
The authors have emphasized the purposes and function of the clinical microbiology laboratory in the diagnosis of infectious diseases. The exercises illustrate as simply as possible the nature of laboratory procedures used for isolation and identification of infectious agents as well as the principles of asepsis disinfection and sterilization. Attention is given to the role of the health professional in regard to the appropriate collection of clinical specimens and the applications of aseptic and disinfectant techniques as they relate to patient care.
