Organ function & metabolism control
Organ function & metabolism control
Clinical Chemistry can measure the blood levels of many proteins, enzymes, ions. These blood levels are related to the activities of many organs and to the general metabolism of the patients. The functions of organs thus explored, are essentially related to the hepatic, pancreatic, renal, muscular or even cardiac functions.
Abnormal metabolism diagnosis
Abnormal metabolism diagnosis
The clinical chemistry dosages of proteins, enzymes and ions, provide the measurement of concentrations for all of these analytes. When these measurements reveal blood molecular concentrations outside normal values, the interpretation of the results may lead to the diagnosis of pathological metabolism.
Disease & metabolism monitoring
Disease & metabolism monitoring
Clinical chemistry instruments allow the monitoring of certain diseases, just as they allow the monitoring of specific molecules or drugs.
Drugs detection
Drugs detection
A particular application in clinical, chemistry that allows the detection of illicit, natural or synthetic products. It's about detecting the abnormal presence in the urine or in the blood of drugs of abuse.
