The subject of laboratory medicine is growing on a fast pace. There is a need for comprehensive, concise and simple textbook of microbiology for DMLT and paramedical courses, and this textbook aims to fill the void.

The textbook is divided into seven sections

  • General Bacteriology

  • Immunology

  • Systemic Bacteriology

  • Virology

  • Mycology

  • Parasitology and

  • Nosocomial Infections.







The text has been presented in a lucid manner for the students to help them imbibe the basics of the subject. It is illustrated with colour figures and clinical photographs. Diagrams of the life-cycles of parasites are computer-drawn and simple line sketches. This makes the textbook colourful and the readers can have better understanding of the biology of the organisms discussed.

The textbook is easy to understand, user-friendly, and will prove to be highly useful to the students of DMLT and other paramedical courses.
