Summary The second edition presents the latest molecular diagnostic techniques to support clinical care and basic and clinical research. The authors all experienced researchers and diagnosticians have conducted a comprehensive review and evaluation of this rapidly evolving field and provide the new material in an easy-to-read summary format. Moreover, the book offers a broad range of practical advice, such as determining the appropriate type and quantity of a specimen, releasing and concentrating the targets, and eliminating inhibitors. David Persing not only examines techniques to detect individual pathogens, but also explores the growing trend toward a systems approach for diagnosing infectious diseases, with chapters covering gastrointestinal infections, sepsis, meningitis, and encephalitis. In short, this text not only encapsulates the current state of the science, but also points to new avenues for research that will broaden the application and usefulness of molecular diagnostics
