072.1-Online: Basic Principles of Chemistry – Techniques Using Alternate Measurements, 2nd Edition


Contact Hours (Points): 6

Analytical chemistry transformed significantly as classical methodologies merged with a dramatic increase in novel techniques. The accomplishments of Atomic Age engineers and physicists in the last half of the 1900’s became refocused on developing technology to diagnose and treat disease. A new era of chemistry arose along with the first generation of baby boomers. Biotechnology companies commercialized science in ways that extended technologies far beyond the research laboratory. Precise, accurate and readily accessible automated instrumentation helped facilitate ubiquitous incorporation into the modern clinical chemistry laboratory. This self-study course mixes the old and the new. It is intended both as a review of some of the basic principles of clinical chemistry and as an explanation of how clinical laboratory scientists utilize these principles in their equipment and technology.

Basic Principles of Chemistry: Techniques Using Alternate Measurements, 2nd Edition

Self-Study 072.1 – Basic Level

Contact Hours (Points): 6

Revised by Matthew Schoell, Ph.D., MLS (ASCP)CM in 2015.

Originally written by Anne M. Van Leeuwen MA, MT(ASCP) and Evelyn A. Perry MS, MT(ASCP)

Published 2000. Revised 2015.

Clinical laboratory science is a dichotomy, pairing the chemical principles of the method with the clinical significance of the analyte being measured. The goal of this course is to review some of the basic principles of chemistry used to quantitate substances of clinical significance and to provide a description of the applications of these principles using specific examples.

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Explain the basis of the principles covered in this course.
  • Describe how the principle has been/can be applied to automation.
  • Identify the components required to support automated systems in the examples provided.
  • Relate the clinical application of each basic principle to common laboratory test procedures.
  • Score at least 80% on the post course examination.
