Clinical Chemistry is also chemical pathology, clinical biochemistry or Medical biochemistry it is the area of clinical pathology that is generally concerned with analysis of bodily fluids. In many diseases there are significant changes in the chemical composition of body fluids such as the raised blood enzymes due to their release from heart muscles after a heart attack; or a raised blood sugar in diabetes mellitus due to lack of insulin. Tests are designed to detect these changes qualitatively or quantitatively compared to results from healthy people.
The discipline originated in the late 19th century with the use of simple chemical tests for various components of blood and urine. Subsequent to this, other techniques were applied including the use and measurement of enzyme activities, spectrophotometry, electrophoresis, and immunoassay.
A Clinical Chemistry department within a hospital provides a link between front line clinical staff and the basic sciences employing analytical and interpretative skills to aid the clinician in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.
Diseases such as heart attacks, kidney failure, viral and Bacteria, infertility, diabetics, high cholesterol, thyroid problems or measuring drug levels to make sure people are on the best dose are some of the many areas where the Clinical Chemistry Laboratory becomes involved in a persons. Some regional laboratories are involved in screening services such as phenylketonuria and cystic fibrosis in newborn babies, genetic screening and screening for illegal drug use.
OMICS International organises 1000+ Global Events every Year in Conference series, on Clinical, Medicine, Pharma and Science & Technology every year across USA, Europe, Asia, Middle East, Australia and UK with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members.
Scope & Importance
All biochemical tests come under chemical pathology. These are performed on any kind of body fluid, but mostly on serum or plasma. Serum is the yellow watery part of blood that is left after blood has been allowed to clot and all blood cells have been removed. This is most easily done by centrifugation, which packs the denser blood cells and platelets to the bottom of the centrifuge tube, leaving the liquid serum fraction resting above the packed cells. This initial step before analysis has recently been included in instruments that operate on the "integrated system" principle. Plasma is in essence the same as serum, but is obtained by centrifuging the blood without clotting. Plasma is obtained by centrifugation before clotting occurs. The type of test required dictates what type of sample is used.
A large medical laboratory will accept samples for up to about 700 different kinds of tests. Even the largest of laboratories rarely do all these tests themselves, and some must be referred to other labs.
This large array of tests can be further sub-categorised into sub-specialities of:
The global clinical chemistry market was valued at $8,965.00 million in 2014 and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 5.52% between 2014and 2019, to reach $11,728.01 million in 2019. Rapid growth in the diagnostics market, increase in the healthcare spending, and increasing incidence in lifestyle disease will drive the growth of the market. Furthermore, increasing awareness for preventative healthcare, increase in aging population, increase in reagent rental agreements and increasing demand for laboratory automation will aid the demand for clinical chemistry products.
