About ClinMicroNow

ClinMicroNow is a service from American Society for Microbiology Press, in partnership with Wiley, offering its gold standard clinical microbiology publications online for quick and easy access. 

The authoritative clinical microbiology sources, ASM's Manual of Clinical Microbiology (MCM), and Clinical Microbiology Procedures Handbook (CMPH), are used every day in laboratories around the world. Now MCM and CMPH, together with the classic text Cases in Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, have merged online to create ClinMicroNow.

This all-encompassing, online resource helps save precious research time as users perform deep searches and get timely updates.

ClinMicroNow offers:

  • Quick and deep searches to find the complete range of pathogenic microbial organisms and related laboratory procedures.
  • Actionable and timely clinical microbiology content updated by peer-selected authors and editors as science advances and clinical practice changes.
  • Highly granular search that produces tables, figures, and cases, in addition to text.

ClinMicroNow is edited by a collaborative, international, and interdisciplinary board of editors who work diligently to ensure the publication of up-to-date, consensus-based information regarding infectious agents, diagnostic methods, laboratory practices, and safety guidelines.
