Review:

'[A] gap has now been filled with the publication of Transfusion Microbiology. There are two questions a potential reader should ask about a textbook like this one. First, does it include all the standard, core material that practitioners refer to on a regular basis; and second, does it have sufficient depth to answer even some of the most esoteric questions in the field? For this book, on almost all counts, the answer is clearly yes. ... all the major infectious agents that can be transmitted by transfusion are included and the level of detail given for each is at least as great as (and frequently greater than) that given in other leading transfusion textbooks. ... Tests for infectious diseases and other methods of preventing transmission are prominently featured in this book. Topics that can confuse the practitioner as well as the trainee, such as confirmatory testing and donor readmission, are given entire chapters with detailed flow charts and diagrams. ... The layout, artwork and tables are noteworthy, not only for their clean aesthetic appeal but also for their detailed content. ... In summary, Transfusion Microbiology is a commendable addition to the field and a reference that many transfusion medicine professionals will want on their bookshelves.' The New England Journal of Medicine

'... an up-to-date and fully referenced source of theoretical and practical information ...' Now & Then

'This is a much needed definitive textbook on the subject of transfusion microbiology ...' The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists

'This one of a kind book melds the disciplines of transfusion associated microbiology with conventional transfusion medicine issues. A nice addition to your bookshelf.' Doody's Book Review

'This multi-author textbook is perhaps the first attempt at producing a comprehensive overview of the infectious risks associated with modern transfusion practice. Indeed the content extends far beyond the traditional boundaries of microbiology and covers a broad range of topics that together assure the safety of manufactured blood components and products. ... [It] provides an accessible and readable overview of the important elements that contribute to the manufacture of safe blood components and products. The editors, and authors, are to be congratulated on this significant achievement.' Bloodlines, British Blood Transfusion Society newsletter

'Transfusion Microbiology is thorough and should be in the library of blood bankers/transfusion medicine specialists. Not only is it comprehensive but easy to read and leads one to seminal references behind the statements of fact and opinion. The editors have compiled a book to be proud of, which should be quite useful to practitioners in the field.' Vox Sanguinis

Book Description:

It is critical that blood transfusion poses as low a risk as possible. Many pathogens can be transmitted by transfusion, and testing is complex and costly. This text covers all infective agents, donor selection and blood testing. Quality, regulation, cost benefit and risk assessment issues are also reviewed.
