Parasitology for Medical and Clinical Laboratory Professionals


John W. Ridley


PARASITOLOGY FOR MEDICAL LABORATORY TECHNICIANS is the ideal text to guide readers in understanding the background, source, recovery, and identification of a well-representative range of organisms that commonly affect humans. This book organizes a complex set of topics into an understandable and easy-to-read format that will help readers learn more about parasitic infections and how to effectively collect and prepare samples, aiding in the diagnosis of parasitosis. The subtle differences between similar parasitic organisms are all explained in a simple and easily understood manner, increasing the likelihood that readers will be able to recover the parasites, prepare them for identification and, subsequently, ensure effective treatment.


“This manuscript is written for both technicians and technologists. It provides both didactic and technical protocols in one text. The study of medical parasitology is documented from a historical perspective to the current date along with the tedious, accurate identification of pathogenic versus nonpathogenic organisms. This textbook is becoming available to replace the typically used textbooks in clinical laboratory science programs.” Mildred K. Fuller, Ph.D., MT (ASCP), Norfolk State University
