Equip students with the foundational knowledge they need to successfully work in a clinical lab with Tietz Fundamentals of Clinical Chemistry and Molecular Diagnostics, 8th Edition. From highly respected clinical chemistry expert Nader Rifai, this condensed, easier-to-understand version of the acclaimed Tietz Textbook of Clinical Chemistry and Molecular Diagnostics uses a laboratory perspective to guide students through selecting and performing diagnostic lab tests and accurately evaluating the results. Fundamental coverage includes laboratory principles, analytical techniques, instrumentation, analytes, pathophysiology, and more. This eighth edition features new clinical cases from The Coakley Collection, new questions from The Deacon’s Challenge of Biochemical Calculations Collection, plus new content throughout the text to ensure your students stay up to date on the latest techniques, instrumentation, and technologies.

    • Condensed version of the clinical chemistry "bible" offers the same authoritative and well-presented content in a much more focused and streamlined manner.
    • Coverage of analytical techniques and instrumentation includes optical techniques, electrochemistry, electrophoresis, chromatography, mass spectrometry, enzymology, immunochemical techniques, microchips, automation, and point of care testing.
    • Updated chapters on molecular diagnostics cover the principles of molecular biology, nucleic acid techniques and applications, and genomes and nucleic acid alterations, reflecting the changes in this rapidly evolving field.
    • Learning objectives, key words, and review questions are included in each chapter to support learning.
    • More than 500 illustrations plus easy-to-read tables help readers better understand and remember key concepts.
    • NEW! Clinical Cases from The Coakley Collection use real-life scenarios to demonstrate how concepts from the text will come in to play in real life practice.
    • NEW! Questions from The Deacon’s Challenge of Biochemical Calculations Collection help reinforce concepts and help readers’ critical thinking skills.
    • NEW! Updated content throughout the text keeps readers up to date on the latest techniques, instrumentation, and technologies.
    • NEW! New lead author Nader Rifai lends his expertise as the Director of Clinical Chemistry at Children’s Hospital in Boston, the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Clinical Chemistry, and a Professor of Pathology at Harvard University.
