Not only does Clinical Chemistry: Fundamentals and Laboratory Techniques provide a clear understanding of pathophysiology and lab testing, it provides complete clinical chemistry coverage for your two-year MLT program! It prepares students for success as medical lab technicians by simplifying complex chemistry concepts and lab techniques including immunoassays, molecular diagnostics, and quality control. Using a pathophysiologic approach, Larson covers diseases that are commonly diagnosed through chemical tests — broken down by body system and category — such as respiratory, gastrointestinal, and cardiovascular conditions. Ideal for students who may have minimal knowledge of chemistry, this full-color text includes complete resources to make teaching and learning easier.

    • 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.
    • Pathophysiology and Analytes section includes information related to diseases or conditions, such as a biochemistry review, disease mechanisms, clinical correlation, and laboratory analytes and assays.
    • Evolve companion website includes case studies and animations that reinforce what you’ve learned from the book.
    • 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. 
    • Chapter summaries consist of bulleted lists and tables highlighting the most important points of each chapter.
    • A glossary at the back of the book provides a quick reference to definitions of all clinical chemistry terms.
