Practical Guide to Clinical Anaerobic Microbiology

Anaerobic microbiology specialist, Don Whitley Scientific (DWS) has launched a new publication ‘An Introduction to Clinical Anaerobic Microbiology’. This guide enables the reader to isolate and identify 12 commonly occurring clinically important anaerobic bacteria. It contains 60 pages printed on waterproof, tear-resistant synthetic paper to withstand regular use at the bench and is illustrated with detailed colour photographs and attractive reference tables.

Designed to fill a gap in the practical reference materials currently available to support clinical laboratory practice for microbiologists, the publication was written by Professor Michael W D Wren, MBE FIBMS, former Consultant Biomedical Scientist in the microbiology department, University College Hospital, and visiting Professor at The University of Westminster. With a foreword by Professor Brian Duerden, Emeritus Professor of Medical Microbiology at Cardiff University and input from Dr Don Whitley, Chairman and founder of DWS, considerable expert knowledge has been combined to make this the most up-to-date reference guide for the modern clinical laboratory. Some of the images were kindly supplied by the Anaerobe Reference Unit, Cardiff.

Now available from DWS (order code A03815), a donation from the sale of each copy will be made to the Society of Anaerobic Microbiology.
