About the Book

Ananthanaryan and Paniker’s Textbook of Microbiology- 10th edition has been developed for the undergraduate MBBS and BDS students, and for all courses dealing with Microbiology as a core or ancillary subject. The tenth edition of this classic textbook has been updated keeping in mind the MCI’s emphasis on integrated teaching underscoring the requirement for applied microbiology.

Significant updates for this edition:

  • New concepts in sterilisation and disinfection, including plasma sterilisation and practices in healthcare settings
  • Automated and updated molecular techniques as applied to microbiology
  • Salient features of the Revised National Tuberculosis Program (RNTCP), with strategies for diagnosis of MDR and XDR tuberculosis, and THE STOP TB Strategy of WHO
  • New and emerging viral infections such as SARS, MERS-CoV, influenza epidemics, the Zika virus outbreak, and the Ebola outbreak
  • NACO guidelines for HIV testing strategies for different categories of the population, and HIV exposure and source codes
  • Latest vaccines for immunisation against childhood infections in India, including Rotavirus, Haemophilus influenzae and pneumococci
  • Healthcare-associated infections leading to CAUTI, VAP, HCABSI and SSI, and strategies for prevention with pictorial representations
  • Biomedical waste management rules (2016)
  • A new chapter on Principles of Laboratory Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases, explaining the work flow in a clinical microbiology laboratory
  • Quality control and accreditation of diagnostic tests performed by laboratories
  • New tabular columns and flowcharts, where required, to make the conceptualisation of processes easy to comprehend by the undergraduate student
