Clinical Laboratory Hematology is a comprehensive survey of laboratory hematology balancing theory with practical applications. It's perfect for students at all levels of an MLT/MLS program (medical lab technician/medical lab science).

The text combines detailed technical information with a running case study. This format will help you synthesize and analyze information, answer questions and solve problems, and consider real-world implications. Case Study questions and checkpoints gauge your grasp of concepts from a module.

The 4th Edition has been thoroughly updated with the latest advances in laboratory medicine. It has new engaging features, including a new interactive library of nearly 1,200 images.
