Designed for major and non-major students taking an introductory level microbiology lab course. Whether your course caters to pre-health professional students, microbiology majors or pre-med students, everything they need for a thorough introduction to the subject of microbiology is right here.
This brief version of the best-selling laboratory manual Microbiology: Laboratory Theory and Application, is intended for majors or non-majors in introductory microbiology laboratory courses. This full-color manual is appropriate for courses populated primarily by allied health students and courses with a preference for an abbreviated number of experiments.
Exercises for the Microbiology Laboratory, Fourth Edition by Michael J. Leboffe and Burton E. Pierce is an inexpensive, black-and-white manual that provides a concise and flexible alternative to other large microbiology laboratory manuals. It can be used by itself as a required lab text, but is also designed to be used in conjunction with A Photographic Atlas for the Microbiology Laboratory.
Laboratory Exercises in Microbiology, 4e by Pollack, et al. presents exercises and experiments covered in a 1 or 2-semester undergraduate microbiology laboratory course for allied health students. The labs are introduced in a clear and concise manner, while maintaining a student-friendly tone. The manual contains a variety of interactive activities and experiments that teach students the basic concepts of microbiology. It also covers methods that allow the safe movement or transfer of microbial cells from one type of growth environment, classification and identification of microbes, microbial biochemistry, medical, food and environmental microbiology.
Microbiology: A Systems Approach is a microbiology text for non-science/allied health majors with a body systems approach to the disease chapters. It is known for its engaging writing style, instructional art program and focus on active learning. Its unique organization in the disease chapters presents students with information in the way they would encounter it in a clinical setting, instead of separating disease information by taxonomy.

Pharmaceutical Microbiology: Essentials for Quality Assurance and Quality Control presents that latest information on protecting pharmaceutical and healthcare products from spoilage by microorganisms, and protecting patients and consumers. With both sterile and non-sterile products, the effects can range from discoloration to the potential for fatality. The book provides an overview of the function of the pharmaceutical microbiologist and what they need to know, from regulatory filing and GMP, to laboratory design and management, and compendia tests and risk assessment tools and techniques. These key aspects are discussed through a series of dedicated chapters, with topics covering auditing, validation, data analysis, bioburden, toxins, microbial identification, culture media, and contamination control. Contains the applications of pharmaceutical microbiology in sterile and non-sterile products Presents the practical aspects of pharmaceutical microbiology testing Provides contamination control risks and remediation strategies, along with rapid microbiological methods Includes bioburden, endotoxin, and specific microbial risks Highlights relevant case studies and risk assessment scenarios
Talaro/Chess: Foundations in Microbiology is an allied health microbiology text for non-science majors with a taxonomic approach to the disease chapters. It offers an engaging and accessible writing style through the use of tools such as case studies and analogies to thoroughly explain difficult microbiology concepts. The newest of these features includes the Secret World of Microbes and Quick Search. We are so excited to offer a robust learning program with student-focused learning activities, allowing the student to manage their learning while you easily manage their assessment. Revised art and updated photos help concepts stand out. Detailed reports show how your assignments measure various learning objectives from the book (or input your own!), levels of Bloom's Taxonomy or other categories, and how your students are doing. The Talaro Learning program will save you time while improving your students success in this course.
Cowan’s Microbiology Fundamentals: A Clinical Approach is The Perfect Fit to align with your course. Here's why: •The author team includes a practicing nurse to help students see how the content fits in their lives and relates to their future career on every page.

Presents the latest molecular diagnostic techniques to support clinical care and basic and clinical research. Encapsulates the current state of the science and points to new avenues for research that will broaden the application and usefulness of molecular diagnostics.
Designed for non-majors and allied health students, Microbiology: Alternate Edition with Diseases by Body System retains the same hallmark art program and clear writing style that have made Robert Bauman's Microbiology such a success, while offering a new body-systems organization for the "disease chapters" (Chapters 19-24). Every student text automatically includes a CD-ROM of the Microbiology Place Website, along with an access code to the online version featuring Research Navigator(tm) . The enhanced Instructor's CD-ROM features dozens of new interactive animations that depict complex microbial processes, as well as all art and photos from the book, videos of microorganisms, customizable PowerPoint(R) lecture outlines, and customizable figures for quickly creating engaging and dynamic classroom presentations.
NMR is becoming an increasingly important technique in all areas of microbiological research. This book describes the theory and practical applications of NMR and is aimed specifically at microbiologists. Discover the value and potential and of this powerful technology. An invaluable reference source for all microbiologists!
Metagenomics is a rapidly growing field of research that has had a dramatic effect on the way we view and study the microbial world. By permitting the direct investigation of bacteria, viruses, and fungi, irrespective of their culturability and taxonomic identities, metagenomics has changed microbiological theory and methods and has also challenged the classical concept of species. This new field of biology has proven to be rich and comprehensive and is making important contributions in many areas including ecology, biodiversity, bioremediation, bioprospection of natural products, and medicine. This book addresses, in a coherent manner, the diverse and multiple aspects of metagenomics and the multiplicity of its potential applications. Renowned authors from around the world have contributed chapters covering the new theoretical insights, the more recent applications, and the dynamically developing methods of data acquisition and analysis. Topics include: conceptual frameworks * tools and methods * integration of complementary approaches * horizontal gene transfer * analysis of complex microbial communities * public data resources * plant-microbe interactions * bioremediation * industrial bioproducts * archaeal metagenomics * bioprospecting novel genes * the human microbiome * and philosophical themes in metagenomics. The book is essential reading for all researchers currently performing metagenomics studies and it is highly recommended for all students and scientists wishing to increase their understanding of this field.
A practical and well-illustrated guide to microbiological, haematological, and blood transfusion techniques. The microbiology chapter focuses on common tropical infections. The haematology chapter deals with the investigation of anaemia and haemoglobinopathies. The blood transfusion chapter provides guidelines on the use of blood and blood substitutes, selection of donors and collection.
