This NEW edition of Contemporary Practice in Clinical Chemistry, designed to supplement the many excellent reference texts for clinical chemistry, provides a clear and concise overview of important topics in the field. This book is the most recent update of the 'white book' (Contemporary Practice in Clinical Chemistry, Second Edition, William Clarke, Ed.), and can be divided into three sections:

  • Clinical laboratory basics — covers laboratory statistics and calculations, quality assurance, and regulatory issues
  • Analytical systems — provides brief descriptions of various methods used in the clinical laboratory, and
  • Clinical systems — emphasizes the physiology and function of the system, which diagnostic tests are appropriate, and how the test results are interpreted.

All of the chapters have been updated to reflect the most recent advances in clinical chemistry. In this edition, we have added sections on NMR, laboratory automation, standardization-harmonization of clinical tests, body fluid analysis, and pediatric clinical chemistry.

It is our hope that Contemporary Practice in Clinical Chemistry will be useful to a wide variety of people. For students, residents, and fellows in clinical chemistry or pathology, it will provide an introduction and overview of the field and assist in review and preparation for board certification examinations. For new medical technologists, this book will provide context for understanding the clinical utility of tests that they perform or may be of use in expanding their knowledge of other areas in the clinical laboratory. For experienced laboratorians, the book will provide an opportunity for exposure to more recent trends and developments in clinical chemistry.
