Written by clinical chemistry educator Donna Larson and a team of expert contributors, this full-color book is ideal for readers who may have minimal knowledge of chemistry and are learning laboratory science for the first time. Full-color illustrations and design simplify complex concepts and make learning easier by highlighting important material. Case studies help you apply information to real-life scenarios.

Laboratory Principles section covers safety, quality assurance, and other fundamentals of laboratory techniques. Review questions at the end of each chapter are tied to the learning objectives, helping you review and retain the material. Critical thinking questions and discussion questions help you think about and apply key points and concepts. Other Aspects of Clinical Chemistry section covers therapeutic drug monitoring, toxicology, transplantation, and emergency preparedness. Learning objectives in each chapter help you to remember key points or to analyze and synthesize concepts in clinical chemistry. A list of key words Is provided at the beginning of each chapter, and these are also bolded in the text.
