In January 2019, the American Society for Microbiology announced the release of the 12th Edition of the Manual of Clinical Microbiology. This manual is one of the leading authoritative references in microbiology which details the most significant state-of-science practices in microbiology. IHMA is pleased to announce that our Director of Global Business Development is a contributor to this manual. Dr. Darcie Carpenter co-authored the chapter, Susceptibility Testing Methods: Anaerobic Bacteria. IHMA is proud that one of our team members contributed to this important scientific reference.
