Synopsis

Biomedical Sciences Essential Laboratory Medicine by Stephen Butler

Biomedical Sciences is an indispensable, all encompassing core textbook for first/ second year biomedical science students that will support them throughout their undergraduate career. The book includes the key components of the IBMS accredited degree programmes, plus sections on actual practice in UK hospital laboratories (including the compilation of a reflective portfolio). The book is visually exciting, and written in an interesting and accessible manner while maintaining scientific rigour. Highlighted boxes within the text link the theory to actual clinical laboratory practice for example, the histopathology chapter includes a photographically illustrated flow chart of the progress of a specimen through the histopathology lab, so that students can actually see how the specimen reception/inking/cut-up/cassette/block/section/stain system works, with an emphasis on the safety procedures that ensure specimens are not confused).

Reviews

As an accompaniment to an undergraduate programme, this is an excellent text that manages to introduce all aspects of biomedical science to the reader. (British Journal of Biomedical Science, 1 January 2013) Overall, Biomedical Sciences: Essential Laboratory Medicine would make a fantastic starting textbook for biomedical students. It is accessible, clinically-focused and covers all major relevant topics. (Phenotype, 28 May 2012)
