Summary:In Molecular Diagnostics For the Clinical Laboratorian notable practitioners describe how laboratory medicine is practiced today and illuminate how it will function tomorrow as the revolutionary advances afforded by molecular diagnostics become increasingly central to effective analysis. Proceeding from a discussion of elementary nucleic acid technology to a review of the more advanced techniques, the distinguished contributors lay the groundwork for a comprehensive understanding of their applications throughout clinical medicine. The result is a detailed description of those molecular technologies currently used in diagnostic laboratories, as well as those that seem particularly promising. Detailed discussions of specific clinical applications include those for cancer, hematological malignancies, cardiovascular disease, and neuromuscular, endocrine, and infectious diseases. Molecular Diagnostics For the Clinical Laboratorian captures for active physicians and clinical laboratory scientists a practical sense of the rapidly evolving applications of molecular biology now being introduced to the medical community at record speeds. Presenting this powerful new technology in a concise, readily understandable fashion, this book constitutes the premier tutorial guide to today's molecular diagnostic techniques
