Chemistry

Clinical chemistry (also known as chemical pathology, clinical biochemistry or medical biochemistry) is the area of clinical pathology that is generally concerned with analysis of bodily fluids.

Most current laboratories are now highly automated to accommodate the high workload typical of a hospital laboratory. Tests performed are closely monitored and quality controlled

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. Plasma is obtained by centrifugation before clotting occurs. The type of test required dictates what type of sample is used.

Beckman Coulter chemistry lab equipment is designed for productivity and workflow efficiency. AU chemistry analysers provide fast and precise analysis complemented by outstanding low maintenance requirements and operator convenience. UniCel DxC chemistry analysers feature system-based automation that reduces manual steps by as much as 50%.
