Clinical Microbiology: Quality in Laboratory Diagnosis, 1st ed. 2012


Clinical Microbiology Quality in Laboratory Diagnosis
(Diagnostic Standards of Care)
Charles Stratton MD and Michael Laposata
ISBN-10: 1936287196
ISBN-13: 978-1936287192



Diagnostic Standards of Care Series Description: A key issue for every laboratory and individual laboratory practitioner is the assessment of risk and a current working knowledge of the standards of care established for diagnostic testing via guidelines, major studies and trials. The Diagnostic Standards of Care series presents an overview of the key diagnoses in clinical pathology using case examples to illustrate effective analysis of the case in light of current evidence and standards for the problem discussed. In addition to being practical diagnostic guides, these volumes will have a unique emphasis on quality assurance and evidence-based testing practices and the role of the pathologist in ensuring quality and patient safety.

Clinical Microbiology address common medical errors seen in the clinical microbiology laboratory in order to show these errors to pathologists and laboratory technicians as well as clinicians. The goal is to allow such errors to be corrected by both individual effort and a systems approach in the laboratory. The book addresses potential medical errors in test ordering and specimen collection, testing in the laboratory, and reporting and interpretation of test results. Each of these phases can have an adverse impact on the diagnosis and treatment of an infectious disease if a medical error occurs. Potential medical errors are described and discussed in a clinical case-based learning format to effectively illustrate the conditions that contribute to these errors and enable the reader to recognize and avoid them in daily practice.

Flow Cytometry in Hematopathology : A Visual Approach to Data Analysis and Interpretation, 2nd ed, 2007



Flow Cytometry in Hematopathology: A Visual Approach to Data Analysis and Interpretation
(Current Clinical Pathology)
Doyen T. Nguyen, Lawrence W. Diamond and Raul C. Braylan,
ISBN-10: 1588298558
ISBN-13: 978-1588298553






Although instrumentation and laboratory techniques for flow cytometry (FCM) immunophenotyping of hematopoietic malignancies are well documented, there is relatively little information on how best to perform data analysis, a critical step in FCM testing. In Flow Cytometry in Hematopathology: A Visual Approach to Data Analysis and Interpretation, three physicians highly experienced in laboratory hematopathology and FCM offer a unique systematic approach to FCM data analysis and interpretation based on the visual inspection of dual parameter FCM graphics. This step-by-step approach to optimal FCM data analysis is demonstrated by means of numerous FCM graphics derived from actual well-documented clinical cases. In this second edition of this well received book, the authors have revised and expanded the text and added more than 100 figures to reflect the recent advances in the field. The focus of the additional material is on the TCR-Vb eight-tube kit which has greatly facilitated the evaluation mature T-cell disorders, and on the DNA dye DRAQ5 for improved grading of malignant lymphoma. The authors also include notes on "tricks of the trade" and pitfalls to avoid. The discussion, covering leukemias, lymphomas, and other conditions, moves from simple to complex specimens, with an emphasis on visual pattern analysis. Richly illustrated and highly instructive, Flow Cytometry in Hematopathology: A Visual Approach to Data Analysis and Interpretation offers clinical pathologists, hematopathologists, and specialists in laboratory medicine a much-needed guide with a practical and logical approach for sharpening their FCM data analysis skills on a wide spectrum of hematologic disorders.
