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.
