Clinical Biochemistry: Contemporary Theories and Techniques, Volume 3 broadens the scope of clinical biochemistry, discussing relevant aspects of serology, microbiology, monoclonal antibody techniques, and instrumentation. This volume includes the biochemical monitoring of cancer, use of chemical and physiochemical approaches to detecting and identifying etiological agents in clinical specimens, and monoclonal antibodies in clinical investigations. The serologic methods in disease diagnosis, instrumentation in clinical chemistry, and hemoglobin analysis and hemoglobinopathies are also deliberated. This text likewise covers the conventional microbiological techniques, serology of streptococcal infections, and impact of microprocessors on clinical instrumentation. This book is a good reference for clinicians interested in theories and techniques related to clinical biochemistry.
