Orth's paper, covering the interpretation of microbiological reports, is timely, practical and informative, while that by Wasserman is an excellent survey of how modern microbiological techniques have added immeasurably to the laboratory diagnosis
of patient infections, yet without forgetting the older laboratory procedures.

So now the laboratory diagnosis
of acute MI is a reality.
In light of these issues, Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI, formerly NCCLS) has recently published Laboratory Detection and Identification of Mycobacteria; Proposed Guideline (M48-P), which addresses topics related to the laboratory diagnosis
of mycobacterial infections, including safety and related issues; levels of service and referrals; clinical significance of mycobacteria; acceptable specimen types and their collection; transport and storage; specimen processing methods; methods for the direct detection of mycobacteria in clinical specimens; culture methods, including contamination issues; reporting and quality control; and phenotypic and genotypic identification procedures.
