Description

T he fourth edition of the (CMPH) is based on the value and user requirements following the first, second, and third editions of CMPH. All of the sixteen sections have been Clinical Microbiology Procedures Handbook
revised and updated.
The purpose of the fourth, similar to that of the past editions, is to provide those
engaged in microbial analysis of clinical specimens with procedures for the detection, identification, and characterization of microorganisms involved in human infections. CMPH remains a procedure-based document that provides step-by-step
descriptions of the numerous testing modalities used in the clinical microbiology
laboratory.
As with previous editions of CMPH, there is continued and expanded emphasis
on molecular and proteomic approaches, bioterrorism, infection control, and the
host’s immunological responses to microbial challenges. Highly knowledgeable
laboratorians have written these procedures and, as appropriate, the format adheres
to CLSI document GP02-A5 (5th ed., 2006).
All procedures have been reviewed extensively by section editors, the editor in
chief, and the ASM Press editors. We continue to encourage the users of these
documents to bring new methods of universal relevance to our attention so they
can be incorporated into the next update and shared with the clinical microbiology
community
