An introduction to the concepts of Clinical Chemistry. Topics include basic laboratory math, the renal system, digestive system with liver function, respiratory system and the endocrine system. Emphasis is on clinical tests which evaluate the function of these systems. Analytes and lab results are correlated to normal homeostasis and disease. Analyte measurements are studied and described in reference to previously covered material such as metabolism, protein synthesis, acid-base balance, electrolyte balance, enzymes, and hormones. Laboratory work includes the theory, operation and maintenance of the specialized and semi- automated analytical instrumentation used to perform these tests.
Prerequisite: CHE 145 and BIO 135 and CLT 110 or permission of instructor; co-requisite: MTH 160
