Chapter 3.1 : Introduction
The Aerobic Bacteriology section of the handbook has been completely revised and updated to reflect current best laboratory practice. However, each section is organized so that specimen collection and processing, supplies, QC, and the actual step-by-step testing are all outlined within a given procedure. When several different methods of testing are acceptable, each option is presented. The users should not reproduce the procedural text of this handbook in its entirety but rather should choose among the various options presented to produce practical procedures applicable to their laboratory.
