Blood Cells has been written with both the practicing hematologist and the trainee in mind. It aims to provide a guide for use in the diagnostic hematology laboratory, covering methods of collection of blood specimens, blood film preparation and staining, the principles of manual and automated blood counts and the assessment of the morphological features of blood cells.

Blood Cells enables both the haematologist and laboratory scientist to identify blood cell features, from the most common to the more obscure.
* Provides essential information on methods of collection, blood film preparation and staining, together with the principles of manual and automated blood counts
* Completely revised and updated, incorporating much newly published information: now includes advice on further tests when a specific diagnosis is suspected
* Four hundred high quality photographs to aid with blood cell identification
