The Basic Bookshelf for Eyecare Professionals is a series that provides fundamental and advanced material with a clinical approach to clinicians and students. A special effort was made to include information needed for the certification exams in ophthalmic and optometric assisting, low vision, surgical assisting, opticianry, and contact lens examiners. The Certified Ophthalmic Medical Technologist Exam Review Manual is a review book designed for those preparing for the COMT® certification exam. This manual offers some 600 multiple-choice questions on every topic listed in the test criteria, including advanced levels of tonometry, visual fields, color vision, clinical optics, motility, photography, pharmacology, and general medical knowledge. Material that is unique to COMTs, such as microbiology and special instruments & techniques, are also covered. Explanatory answers, often with supporting illustrations and tables as well as the reference from which the material was obtained, are offered to round out your study experience. Suggested study texts are listed, along with an appendix on how to take a practical examination.
With every new edition, the No. 1 best-selling non-majors microbiology book wins over readers with its careful balance of concepts and applications, art that teaches, and its straightforward presentation of complex topics.

Laboratory Applications in Microbiology: A Case Study Approach uses real-life case studies as the basis for exercises in the laboratory. This is the only microbiology lab manual focusing on this means of instruction, an approach particularly applicable to the microbiology laboratory. The author has carefully organized the exercises so that students develop a solid intellectual base beginning with a particular technique, moving through the case study, and finally applying new knowledge to unique situations beyond the case study.
For general microbiology laboratory courses Laboratory Experiments in Microbiology features 57 thoroughly class-tested and easily customizable exercises that teach basic microbiology techniques and applications. The manual provides comprehensive coverage of every area of microbiology across diverse disciplines, including the biological sciences, allied health sciences, agriculture, environmental science, nutrition, pharmacy, and various pre-professional programs. The lab manual is the perfect companion to Tortora/Funke/Case's Microbiology: An Introduction, 13th Edition or any introductory microbiology text. The 12th Edition of Laboratory Experiments in Microbiology is easier than ever to navigate and more visually effective with new icons indicating when an exercise addresses the human or environmental microbiome, is investigative, or addresses an ASM guideline. New ASM Thinking Skills outline the steps that help develop laboratory thinking skills. Pre-lab quizzes in Mastering(tm) Microbiology ensure students arrive prepared for each lab, and activities such as Lab and Lecture: Putting It All Together help students see how lab and lecture are integrated.
This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Containing 57 thoroughly class-tested and easily customizable exercises,Laboratory Experiements in Microbiology: Tenth Edition provides engaging labs with instruction on performing basic microbiology techniques and applications for undergraduate students in diverse areas, including the biological sciences, the allied health sciences, agriculture, environmental science, nutrition, pharmacy, and various pre-professional programs. The Tenth Edition features an updated art program and a full-color design, integrating valuable micrographs throughout each exercise. Additionally, many of the illustrations have been re-rendered in a modern, realistic, three-dimensional style to better visually engage students. Laboratory Reports for each exercise have been enhanced with new Clinical Applications questions, as well as question relating to Hypotheses or Expected Results. Experiments have been refined throughout the manual and the Tenth Edition includes an extensively revised exercise on transformation in bacteria using pGLO to introduce students to this important technique.
