Reviews

From the reviews:

"This comprehensive work on the laboratory diagnosis of infectious diseases with its more than 2000 pages in 2 volumes differs from books with similar contents in a number of aspects. … Numerous figures and schematic representations enhance the understanding of the text. – The 180 authors have created a work which will stand the test of practice in the hospital as well as in the laboratory." (W. Köhler, Zentralblatt für Bakteriologie, Mikrobiologie und Hygiene, Vol. 317, May, 1991)
