The Aerobic Bacteriology section of the handbook has been reorganized to place each part of the procedure together, including collection, specimen processing, supplies, QC, and the actual step-by-step testing. This will allow the user to see an overview of the entire procedure together. 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.
