Summary

Summary

This extensively revised, performance-based text covers the theory and techniques of basic medical laboratory procedures that are performed in physician office laboratories, small clinics, hospital laboratories, public health departments and point-of-care testing facilities. The procedures follow a user-friendly format that includes objectives, glossary, review questions, and a performance guide. This text includes 16 CLIA-waived tests, as well as some more complex tests, and incorporates up-to-date CLIA and OSHA safety regulations. This fourth-edition text is a comprehensive guide to all the essential laboratory techniques. (Allied Health, Medical Lab Technicians, CLIA, OSHA, laboratory techniques)
