For more than 50 years the spirit of "Dacie and Lewis" has influenced the laboratory field of haematology. This new version of the classic textbook represents the 10th edition which continues to describe the many standard and novel techniques by hands-on recipes, from basic principles to perfectionism, including comments and pictures of pitfalls and critical interpretation of results.
The methodologically laboratory basis for clinical haematology is an aspect not often covered in medical textbooks in the specialty. The tenth "Dacie and Lewis: Practical haematology" sets an impressive record and continues to succeed to solve the task with an excellent standard. -- European Journal of Haematology
This book will remain the definitive reference source for established haematologists, biomedical scientists and research students interested in the scientific and practical aspects of haematology and for trainees in haematology who are particularly advised to read it before their exams---Royal College of Pathologists
"This latest edition see a major overhaul of the design and layout, bringing a more colurful reading experience. A new, and welcome addition is the provision of online access to the full text at ExperConsult.com - which prevents shoulder strain on the commuting trainee."
