Reviews

“The purpose is to provide an overview of approaches to immunohematology problems. … This book is intended for trainees who already have a basic foundation of immunohematology knowledge, so it would be most useful to trainees, educators and/or practitioners in blood banking, transfusion medicine, laboratory medicine, or clinical hematology. … This is a must for anyone interested in immunohematology -- it is a great book for learning immunohematology.” (Valerie L. Ng, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2016)
