The Sixth Edition of has been thoroughly revised by the three authors, specialists in the field of Laboratory Medicine.

The present authors have adhered to the general concept presented by Dr. Bray in the Preface of the First Edition, “The selection and arrangement of the material have resulted from a constant effort to aid … in solving the everyday problems that arise in … routine laboratory work.”

The 6th edition reflects the many advances that have taken place in the practice of Laboratory Medicine in the twenty-six years since the first printing. The word “routine” that is frequently used throughout this new edition could well be eliminated. Routine laboratory work is not acceptable as is evidenced by the multitude of specific tests described in every division of this book.

The chapter on Urinalysis had added discussions of the principles of paper chromatography and the use of steroids together with methods for their determination and brief explanation of their significance.
