This is a comprehensive standard operative procedure manual for all
types of specimensreceived in a clinical bacteriology diagnostic laboratory
serving a tertiary care hospital. The manual has been compiled by referring to
international protocols customized to the needs and the infrastructure already
available in India or infrastructure that can be achieved by upgradation.

This book has been
written for those who are beginning the study of bacteriology and especially for
those who plan to specialize in the subject. It is concerned chiefly with a
discussion of the important principles and facts of bacteriology which a student
should acquire in order to realize to the fullest extent the more advanced work
on the subject.
first presents the basic concepts of the immune response, bacterial
structure, taxonomy, metabolism, and genetics. Subsequent chapters emphasize
normal relationships among bacteria on external surfaces, mechanisms by which
microorganisms damage the host, host defense mechanisms, source and distribution
of pathogens (epidemiology), principles of diagnosis and mechanisms of action of

This book is published by World Health Organization. In
this book WHO brings together and updates the various guidelines produced by WHO
over the years on sampling of specimens for laboratory investigation,
identification of bacteria, and testing of antimicrobial resistance. The
information included is intended to lead to harmonization of microbiological
investigations and susceptibility testing, and to improve the quality of
laboratories at both central and intermediate levels.
