Summary "The second edition of A Beginner's Guide to Blood Cells has been updated and expanded. There is more information on the clinical aspects of haematology. The text now indicates the further tests that are likely to be useful if an abnormality is found in the blood. More 'test-yourself' exercises have been added, suited for users at various levels. The second edition is suitable for all those learning to interpret blood films or laboratory tests, particularly biomedical scientists, haematology trainees and medical students. It is also useful for other scientists who need a basic knowledge of haematology for the practice of their profession, particularyl nurses and cytogeneticists."--BOOK JACKET
