Clinical Microbiology

This chapter describes the field of clinical microbiology, which is concerned with the detection and identification of pathogens that are the etiological agents of infectious disease. Identification may be based on the results of some combination of morphological, physiological, biochemical, and immunological procedures. Time may be critical in life-threatening situations; therefore, rapid identification systems and computers can be used to greatly speed up the process.
