Comprehensive survey of laboratory hematology, for both MLT and MLS students
Clinical Laboratory Hematology balances theory and practical applications in a way that is engaging and useful to medical laboratory technician and science (MLT/MLS) students, at all levels. Detailed technical information combined with a running, realistic case study provide ample opportunities to analyze and synthesize information, answer questions and solve problems, and consider real-world applications. Content of the 4th edition has been thoroughly updated with the latest advances in laboratory medicine and with updated content on iron metabolism and myelodysplastic syndromes.

Pearson eText
is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience that can be adopted on its own as the main course material. It lets students highlight and take notes all in one place, even when offline. Educators can easily customize the table of contents, schedule readings, and share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class – motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning.
