Topic

Clinical Laboratory Investigations is a subject based on a solid knowledge in chemistry, biochemistry and physiology. It gives a practical guide to understand and interpret a wide variety of modern laboratory tests by showing the molecular basis of them. The subject includes classic chemical and biochemical methods, immunochemistry, hematology, blood coagulation, toxicology and molecular biology. The major methodological aspects and applications are discussed during the lectures.
