About this book

This title places the theoretical foundations of clinical biochemistry firmly in a practical environment. Written for students with a grounding in fundamental biochemical concepts, it demonstrates how the biomedical scientist applies these principles to key laboratory investigations. Providing a comprehensive overview of the discipline as applied to a wide range of diseases and disorders, and with coverage of laboratory automation and quality control, the text forges a clear link between science and practice.

I absolutely love this brilliant book, and would thoroughly recommend it to any student needing to understand clinical biochemistry results. I know I will be using it extensively within my final year of studies. Ruth Loebl, Nutrition Student, Nottingham University This book will be a valuable resource both for undergraduate students and qualified staff studying for further professional examinations in clinical biochemistry. G. Loyd in British Journal of Biomedical Science The methodological detail enables the student to appreciate the techniques involved and provides a broad overview of key areas of the subject. Gillian Campling, School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Durham University
