Clinical Biochemistry II follows through from MLS 600 in the coverage of biochemical concepts, principles and procedures in the discipline of clinical pathology. Whilst the first year of Clinical Biochemistry focused more on the basic principles of metabolism and diagnostic technology, the second year extends into more complex treatment of the pathophysiology of disease and laboratory management. The syllabus addresses the clinical biochemistry of electrolytes and blood gases, neonatal disease, drugs and toxicology, quality control, tumor markers, liver, renal and gastrointestinal function and calcium and other metals metabolism. This course is designed to provide students with the knowledge on rationale, use and procedures of testing of specific analytes of the human body and interpreting the test results. Clinical Biochemistry will focus on performing satisfactory biochemical procedures using standard equipment, apparatuses, and reagents.
