This fully updated edition includes the novel identification, detection, and typing technologies that are transforming the field of diagnostic testing. The authors, working at the forefront of diagnostic test development, highlight these new technologies and describe current and future molecular diagnostic tests and related nucleic acid extraction methods. The protocols range from advanced molecular detection, quantification, and typing systems, to protocols for diagnostic protein identification, serological testing, and cell culture-based assays. The emphasis is on nucleic acid-based diagnostics and alternative biochemically- and immunologically-based formats that can provide significant potential for multiparameter testing and automation.

(Dr. J Cargill, acp News, Winter, 2006) "This very practical volume provides concise, state of the art molecular diagnostic bacteriology protocols for a range of species ... . In my view this book provides a valuable additional source of applied protocols for scientists interested in the detection and differentiation of bacteria ... . I strongly recommend this book for purchase by laboratory-based scientists interested in bacterial detection and differentiation." (David C. Coleman, SGM- Society for General Microbiology, 2007) "The hard-cover publication in A5 format amounting to 225 pages including a six-page index contains 16 chapters ... . The book is thus a valuable aid both for beginning and for experienced laboratory workers. ... Diagnostic Bacteriology Protocols will be used both by experienced molecular biologists for whom it is a source of extending their used techniques, and by beginning specialists with basic knowledge of diagnostic procedures in molecular biology. The uniform and clear treatment offers very good orientation in the flood of ever-emerging facts." (E. Pavlik, Folia Microbiologica, December, 2007)
