Original description from the release of the 7th edition:

Manual of Clinical Laboratory Immunology, 7th Edition continues the tradition of serving as a guide for laboratory directors. This edition places emphasis on molecular techniques and introduces new material that reflects the significant advances and developments in the field of clinical immunology. This reference will be of practical use to immunologists and will serve the needs of students, instructors, and practitioners of clinical immunology.

The book provides a review of the basic principles underlying clinical procedures, features detailed descriptions of the methodology used, and places special focus on the interpretation of laboratory findings.

The molecular theme is woven throughout the sections, with the first section of the book specifically outlining cutting-edge molecular applications soon to be introduced into the standard immunology laboratory. Timely material is introduced in chapters and sections covering transplantation, monitoring of cytokines and chemokines, multiple applications of flow cytometry, allergic diseases, and cancer.
