Techniques in Clinical Chemistry: A Handbook for Medical Laboratory Technicians is a five-chapter supplementary handbook on the fundamentals of medical laboratory test and protocols.
The opening chapter covers the fundamental aspects of medical laboratories, including accuracy measures, methods of analysis, buffers, indicators, and valency. These topics are followed by discussions on the procedures for preliminary preparation, primarily for sample preparation and specimen collection. Considerable chapters are devoted to the scrutinized analysis of specific specimen, such as blood, cerebrospinal fluid, feces, gastric sample, and urine. The final chapter discusses technical essentials of renal and hepatic function tests. This handbook is directed toward medical and laboratory technicians and clinicians.
