The new edition promises a completely current overview of this increasingly commonplace technology. With every chapter either completely reworked or significantly updated to include the latest developments and new contributions from 10 new international authorities, this will be the go-to resource on clinical flow cytometry for years to come. More than that it promises to deliver a uniquely engaging learning experience with a bonus CD filled with real-world cases and interpretations. Drs. Carey and McCoy bring the new edition of 'Flow Cytometry in Clinical Diagnosis' alive with the bonus CD, which includes data from actual flow analysis and patient samples for 39 cases.
From the reviews of the 3rd Edition... "The standard reference for anyone interested in understandingflow cytometry technology." American Journal of Clinical Oncology "...one of the most valuable of its genre and...addressed to awide audience?written in such an attractive way, being bothinformative and stimulating." Trends in Cell Biology This reference explains the science and discusses the vastbiomedical applications of quantitative analytical cytology usinglaser-activated detection and cell sorting. Now in its fourthedition, this text has been expanded to provide full coverage ofthe broad spectrum of applications in molecular biology andbiotechnology today. New to this edition are chapters on automatedanalysis of array technologies, compensation, high-speed sorting,reporter molecules, and multiplex and apoptosis assays, along withfully updated and revised references and a list of suppliers.
This updated and expanded tutorial guide to molecular diagnostic techniques takes advantage of many new molecular technologies to include both improved traditional methods and totally new methods, some not yet in routine use. The authors offer cutting-edge molecular diagnostics for genetic disease, human cancers, infectious diseases, and identity testing, as well as new insights into the question of quality assurance in the molecular diagnostics laboratory. Additional chapters address other technologies found in the clinical laboratory that complementary to molecular diagnostic technologies and discuss genetic counseling and the ethical and social issues involved with nucleic acid testing.
Recognized as the definitive reference in laboratory medicine since 1908, Henry's Clinical Diagnosis continues to offer state-of-the-art guidance on the scientific foundation and clinical application of today's complete range of laboratory tests. Employing a multidisciplinary approach, it presents the newest information available in the field, including new developments in technologies and the automation platforms on which measurements are performed. Provides guidance on error detection, correction, and prevention, as well as cost-effective test selection. Features a full-color layout, illustrations and visual aids, and an organization based on organ system. Features the latest knowledge on cutting-edge technologies of molecular diagnostics and proteomics. Includes a wealth of information on the exciting subject of omics; these extraordinarily complex measurements reflect important changes in the body and have the potential to predict the onset of diseases such as diabetes mellitus. Coverage of today's hottest topics includes advances in transfusion medicine and organ transplantation; molecular diagnostics in microbiology and infectious diseases; point-of-care testing; pharmacogenomics; and the microbiome. Toxicology and Therapeutic Drug Monitoring chapter discusses the necessity of testing for therapeutic drugs that are more frequently being abused by users.
To interpret the laboratory results. To distinguish the normal from the abnormal and to understand the merits and demerits of the assays under study. The book attempts to train a laboratory medicine student to achieve sound knowledge of analytical methods and quality control practices, to interpret the laboratory results, to distinguish the normal from the abnormal and to understand the merits and demerits of the assays under study.
This book covers the unique application of flow cytometry in drug discovery and development. The first section includes two introductory chapters, one on flow cytometry and one on biomarkers, as well as a chapter on recent advances in flow cytometry. The second section focuses on the unique challenges and added benefits associated with the use of flow cytometry in the drug development process. The third section contains a single chapter presenting an in depth discussion of validation considerations and regulatory compliance issues associated with drug development.
This text is a detailed guide to the use of flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry, and molecular genetic techniques for diagnosis of hematologic neoplasms. Dr. Sun explains the principles of these techniques and demonstrates their utility in 39 clinical cases covering all important entities. Each case represents a comprehensive diagnostic approach including a clinical history and flow cytometric, immunohistochemical, and molecular genetic findings. Abundant full-color illustrations show histologic sections, immunohistochemical stains, bone marrow, peripheral blood, and body fluid smears, and each case includes a complete set of flow cytometric histograms. Over 100 tables compare and differentiate the diagnostic features of similar diseases. An image bank will be available on a companion Website.
This book is a focused review of clinical flow cytometry, and is meant to be helpful in daily clinical practice for those just beginning to learn flow cytometry as well as those with years of experience. Covering the basic principles of flow cytometry, and then engaging in detailed reviews of the flow cytometric evaluation of B-cells, plasma cells, T-cells, and myeloid cells, it packs a wide variety of immunophenotypic data into one volume. Moreover, this book covers both normal and abnormal findings for each lineage, and highlights key pitfalls to avoid making diagnostic mistakes. Many of the most common neoplastic entities are reviewed, and signature findings are highlighted. Using the updated nomenclature for clinical hematologic malignancies provided by the revised 4th edition of the WHO classification system, the book is current in its approach and content. Whenever possible, detailed colored examples of flow cytometric plots are provided to help convey the important diagnostic findings. Most importantly, a review of current applications of flow cytometry in minimal residual disease is provided to assist in both the development and interpretation of these assays. Written by experts in the field, the result is a practical resource for use as an everyday clinical reference.
