Essential Laboratory Reference Updated

Northfield, IL—The College of American Pathologists (CAP) has published the second edition of the leading reference text for peripheral blood pathology, The Color Atlas of Hematology. Updated, expanded content builds on the original edition, but adds mixed-media content across more than 400 highly visual pages, many with images linked digitally to virtual peripheral blood smears, allowing the reader to view them as they would appear under a microscope. Other links take the user to educational videos from the authors.

“We’ve gone above and beyond a typical reference text,” says pathologist and senior editor of the Atlas, Eric F. Glassy, MD, FCAP. “By leveraging technology, we’ve also produced a learning tool that reinforces vital facts and tips through audio-visual content that helps the user understand and retain new information.”

Building on decades of laboratory proficiency data, the second edition focuses on peripheral blood pathology and includes the latest WHO terms and disease categories. New chapters offer insight into molecular and cytogenetics, flow cytometry, pediatric hematology, lymphocytes and granulocytes, as well as a grounding in the history of hematology and evolution of the microscope.

An essential reference for pathologists, hematopathologists, and medical and laboratory technicians in today’s clinical laboratory, the new Color Atlas of Hematology uses QR codes throughout the book to immerse the user in detailed digital content.

Even as hematology workflows and laboratory technology evolve, the manual review of select slides and the expert interpretation of the pathologist and laboratory technologist remain essential to accurate diagnostics.
