The revised, updated Sixth Edition of this classic text incorporates the latest technologies, techniques, and opportunities in clinical chemistry. Geared to two-year Medical Laboratory Technician and four-year Medical Technology programs, the book focuses sharply on what MLTs and MTs need to know. No other text is more careful to strike a balance between analytical principles and techniques and the correlation of laboratory results. New case studies have been added to this edition. A companion website will offer additional case studies, a quiz bank, and flashcards for students and improved instructor's resources, including an image bank, a test generator, PowerPoint slides, answers to the chapter review questions, additional case studies and answers, teaching tips, and weblinks.
