This book focuses on the design procedures that minimize the likelihood of error. It also explains how to design the laboratory facility to maximize the ability of staff to get their work done in an efficient and effective manner by describing the best practices available for design planning, technical proficiency and careful data analysis.

The goal of the book is to provide help to those who are interested in learning the perspectives of industry leaders, to better organize the microbiology lab, to meet the corporate needs as well as reflect the organization not only in the facility but in the laboratory procedures and training.

This book is unique in looking at the question of lab design from a purely microbiological perspective and offers concrete direction to setting up your systems and facilities to minimize errors and data variability.
