The book is primarily intended to meet the requirements of CMLT/DMLT and undergraduate courses. It covers all the required topics in a descriptive and sygnoptic style. Various concepts have been explained using simple language and short sentences for easy comprehension. It also discusses the latest techniques in biochemistry like glucometer, HbA/C test and autoanalysers. The text is divided into 2 parts-first part deals with elementary knowledge of organic, inorganic physical and analytical chemistry. The second part deals with aim and scope of biochemistry, structure of cell, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids enzymes, metabolism, hormones, liver/renal function text (cardiac function test), electrolytes, body fluids, automation, etc.

With Lippincott Illustrated Reviews, Seeing is Understanding.
Designed to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today, The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series combines essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice, demonstrating how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled with the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a biomedical scientist may be exposed, from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science.
A new volume in this exciting series, Clinical Biochemistry places the theoretical foundations of clinical biochemistry in a practical environment, demonstrating how biomedical scientists apply fundamental biochemical principles to key laboratory investigations. The text provides a comprehensive overview of the discipline--as applied to a wide range of diseases and disorders--and also covers laboratory automation and quality control, forging a clear link between science and practice.
Clinical Biochemistry is enhanced by numerous case studies, examples, and full color throughout. A Companion Website offers resources for students and instructors, including a fully interactive digital microscope--with a range of cell and tissue images for examination--self-assessment activities, and video podcasts that include interviews with practicing biomedical scientists and "in the lab" footage.
Features: Used Book in Good ConditionBy (author): Mitchell Fry
This text addresses the growing need for a new kind of textbook for medical and biomedical undergraduates that presents a fully integrated approach to biochemistry and medicine, rather than covering biochemistry on a topic by topic basis with a smattering of 'medical cases' to demonstrate relevance. The majority of pre-clinical medical students do not need a detailed biochemistry text book, but rather "biochemistry as a basis" or as an "add-on". The major challenge for them is to integrate biochemical knowledge, to clinical application in the understanding of the etiology of diseases, their diagnosis and treatment.
Essential Biochemistry for Medicine is not intended to be an exhaustive, comprehensive reference; rather a concise, accessible guide that will help first year students, from a wide spectrum of backgrounds, gain a good basic understanding of the biochemistry behind common medical disorders. It integrates biochemistry with clinical applications and the understanding of the etiology of diseases, their diagnosis and treatment. Each chapter includes a concise and simple introduction to the relevant biochemistry and terminology to reinforce what biomedical students have covered, orientate them and encourage them to consider the medical context; whilst at the same time outlining the biochemistry in a simple, "must know" format, for medical students before directing them to the all important clinical considerations.
A fully integrated approach to give students a basic understanding of the biochemistry behind common medical disorders
