Course objectives
The laboratory course is designed to introduce the student to the principles and practices of clinical chemistry. Through laboratory experiences the student will develop the necessary skills to perform analytical procedures and evaluate laboratory data. The exercises familiarize the student with the performance of simple laboratory tests common in health care centers.

At the end of the course students should be able to:
understand basic principles of basic analytical parameters determination in blood serum and urine;
determine basic biochemical parameters in serum and urine;
interpret measured results in context of potential health/disease

Syllabus
  • Principles of laboratory biosafety and biosecurity. Main phases of laboratory testing (collection and processing of blood/urine, requisition forms for testing, analytical phase. Interpretation of results - a reference interval, decision limit, critical difference). Biochemical analyzers.
  • Determination of triglycerides. Determination of cholesterol (total, HDL) in serum and blood. Calculation of LDL-cholesterol and derived parameters.
  • Determination of glucose in blood and serum. Oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). Determination of glycated hemoglobin. Determination glucosuria and ketonuria.
  • Determination of total protein in serum. Electrophoresis of serum proteins and lipoproteins. Determination of serum albumin. Determination of serum proteins by ELISA. Determination of cardiomarkers by POCT. Estimation of C-reactive protein by agglutination test.
  • Determination of catalytic concentration of serum enzymes (ALT / AST, ALP isoenzymes, total CK, CK-MB) by kinetic and constant time methods, influence of temperature. Determination of the mass concentration of CK-MBmass.
  • Determination of nitrogen metabolites in serum/urine (total bilirubin, conjugated, uric acid, urea). Approximate evaluation of nitrogen balance.
  • Analysis of urinary proteins (proteinurias, microalbuminuria, Bence-Jones protein). Chemical dipstick testing.
  • Objective and physical examination urine. Determination of urine osmolality. Determination of serum/urine creatinine. Creatinine clearance and estimation of glomerular filtration rate. Fractional excretion and reabsorption of water.
  • Indicative chemical analysis of urinary stones.
  • Laboratory tests of saliva (rate of salivation, buffering capacity, lactate) Examination of gastrointestinal tract Laboratory examination of stomach (gastric acid output, confirmation of Helicobacter pylori by breath and urease tests). Laboratory test in pancreatic disease (α-amylase, secretin-CCK and NBT-PABA and MTG breath tests). Test of occult bleeding in GIT.
  • Solution of model cases.
