The text provides both a fundamental overview of the field of clinical laboratory science and a discipline-by-discipline approach to each of the clinical lab science areas. It stresses laboratory skills and techniques throughout -- providing the general background knowledge necessary for working in a clinical laboratory and performing routine clinical laboratory tests.
