Make sure you are thoroughly prepared to work in a clinical laboratory. Rodak’s Hematology: Clinical Principles and Applications, 7th Edition uses hundreds of full-color photomicrographs to help you understand the essentials of hematology and hemostasis. This new edition details the parts and functions of the cell; shows how to accurately identify cells; covers normal hematopoiesis through diseases of erythroid, myeloid, lymphoid, and megakaryocytic origins; and simplifies hemostasis and thrombosis concepts and disorders. Easy to follow and understand, this book also covers key topics, including working in the hematology and hemostasis laboratory; complementary testing areas such as flow cytometry, cytogenetics, and molecular diagnostics; and laboratory testing of blood cells and body fluid cells.
