Clinical Laboratory Chemistry is a highly readable introduction to essential analytes, for CLT/MLT and CLS/MT students. It's part of Pearson's clinical laboratory science series, which offers a balanced, engaging presentation of theory and application. The text focuses on clinically significant analyses you're likely to encounter in the lab.

The 2nd Edition expands upon detailed technical information. Its real case studies help you synthesize and analyze information, while building an appreciation for the significant role that laboratory chemists play in patient care. New mini cases clarify the principles and add to the book's real-life focus. New figures and photographs add to the book's aesthetic appeal and visually oriented learning approach.
