Clinical chemistry is a quantitative science. It is concerned with measurement of amounts of biologically important substances (called analytes) in body fluids. The methods to measure these substances are carefully designed to provide accurate assessments of the concentrations. The results that are obtained from such measurements are compared to reference intervals or a Medical Decision Level (MDL) to provide diagnostic and clinical meaning for the values.
Hundreds of compounds, molecules and ions circulate in body fluids. Many of these can be measured by tests used in laboratories. These tests are valuable in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.
The tests measure concentrations of biologically important ions (salts and minerals), small organic molecules and large macromolecules (primarily proteins). See below for more detail about specific analytes.
