Introduction to Medical Laboratory Technology presents the development in the medical laboratory science. It discusses the general laboratory glassware and apparatus. It addresses a more specialized procedure in mechanization, automation, and data processing. Some of the topics covered in the book are the composition of glass; cleaning of glassware; the technique of using volumetric pipettes; technique for centrifugation; the production of chemically pure water; principal foci of a converging lens; micrometry; magnification; setting up the microscope; and fluorescence microscopy. The precautions against infection are covered. The storage of chemicals and treatment of accidents are discussed. The text describes the collection and reporting of specimens. A study of the fundamentals of chemistry and endocrine systems is presented. A chapter is devoted to the elementary colorimetry and spectro-photometry. Another section focuses on the introduction to clinical chemistry and blood gas analysis. The book can provide useful information to scientists, physicists, doctors, students, and researchers.
