The series * Understands the complex roles of Biomedical Scientists in the modern practice of medicine. * Understands the development needs of employers and the Profession. * Addresses the need for understanding of a range of fundamental sciences in the context of Biomedicine. * Places the theoretical aspects of Biomedical Science in their practical context. Clinical Biochemistry 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. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Clinical Biochemistry features: For registered adopters of the book: .. Figures from the book, available to download For students: .. An interactive Digital Microscope, encouraging the exploration of tissue samples ..
Self-assessment modules to help you to check and reinforce understanding of the basic science introduced in each volume .. Video podcasts including interviews with practicing biomedical scientists, and 'in the lab' footage showing biomedical science in 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.
