MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

This essential resource enables the haematologist and laboratory scientist to identify blood cell features, from the most common to the more obscure.


Now in its fifth edition, Blood Cells provides a guide for use in the diagnostic haematology laboratory, covering methods of collection of blood specimens, blood film preparation and staining, the principles of manual and automated blood counts, and the assessment of the morphological features of blood cells. The practising haematologist should find this book sufficiently comprehensive to be a reference source while, at the same time, the trainee haematologist and biomedical scientist should find it a straightforward and practical bench manual.


Provides invaluable information on methods of blood collection and blood film preparation and staining, together with the principles of manual and automated blood counts


Contains over four hundred high quality, full colour photographs to aid with blood cell identification


Offers practical advice on further tests when a specific diagnosis is suspected


Completely revised and updated, incorporating newly published information


New to the fifth edition, multiple choice questions (MCQs) and extended matching questions


(EMQs) are hosted on the book companion website: www.wiley.com/go/bain/bloodcells
