Full-color, high-resolution images facilitate identification of different blood cell types, numbers, anomalies and conditions. Multiple representations of morphologic abnormalities aid in recognition of conditions where variations in appearance commonly occur. Practical information includes an overview of laboratory methods, equipment and supplies, sample collection, staining and handling, and diagnostic interpretation of blood smears. Coverage of 125 topics ranges from the morphology of erythrocytes to chronic myeloid leukemia. Spiral binding allows the book to lay open next to the microscope, making it a quick and easy reference while on the job.
