Standard Methods of Clinical Chemistry, Volume 6 provides information pertinent to the more accurate methods of analysis. This book deals with various subjects, including personnel management, electronics, and data processing systems. Organized into 21 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the most colorimetric methods for estimating uric acid based on the nonspecific reduction of phosphotungstate by uric acid in an alkaline solution. This text then examines the electrophoretic separation and quantitation of proteins in serum or other body fluids. Other chapters provide a discussion of the control of the major reaction variables needed to meet the recommendations of the International Union of Biochemistry. This book discusses as well the modifications developed to eliminate some of the inaccuracies resulting from incomplete destruction of hydrogen peroxide and instability of the developed chromophore. The final chapter deals with the enzymatic methods for the determination of lactic and pyruvic acids in body fluids and tissues. This book is a valuable resource for clinical chemists.
