Principles and Procedures for Detection of Anaerobes in Clinical Specimens, Approved Guideline, M56AE

193,00 €


This document provides procedures for performing testing and providing accurate, reliable, and useful results to
laboratories with differing levels of expertise in anaerobe bacteriology. Preexamination requirements for specimen selection,
collection, transport, timely processing, and examination procedures are discussed. Rapid and complex methods are compared for
their ability to provide definitive identifications. Because the delivery of preliminary reports is vital to patient care when complex
final reports are delayed, interpretations of direct smears and culture results are presented to help laboratorians confidently issue
preliminary reports. Descriptions of anaerobes involved in human disease and a discussion of diagnostic methods for Clostridium
difficile disease are presented. Guidelines for establishing competency testing to laboratories at their various levels of expertise
and complexity are included. Because failures in good practices for preexamination, examination, and postexamination
techniques can put patients at risk, a discussion of risk assessment during the design and implementation of anaerobe
bacteriology protocols is included.
