Safely handle urine and body fluids | Process and analyze them effectively
Here’s a comprehensive and highly visual introduction to the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to safely handle and analyze non-blood body fluids.

The authors’ focused and reader-friendly approach begins with an emphasis on safety; introduces automation in urinalysis and body fluids analysis; and presents the foundational concepts of renal function and urinalysis. Then, step by step, you’ll learn the critical lab procedures for the examination of urine, cerebrospinal fluid, semen, synovial fluid, serous fluid, bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, amniotic fluid, feces, and vaginal secretions.
