[SOLVED] Clinical Biochemistry
As a clinical scientist in a small hospital you are in discussions with the clinical multidisciplinary team about the feasibility of introducing a new laboratory test to measure analyte X in the biochemistry laboratory. It is hoped the introduction of this test will help reduce the number of patients being referred for unnecessary invasive investigations for disease Y. Critically discuss the considerations for introducing this test. (NB Analyte X = small protein . keep the analyst and disease Unknown and just discuss analytic method . You might want to consider/critically discuss the following in your assignment: Clinical & analytical requirements for the proposed test. Possible methods that could be employed to measure X. Practice considerations for implementing such a test. Word count 2000-2500 words discuss : principle- cost- time – advantages and disadvantages each procedure- also discuss accuracy and sensitivity sample preparation – pre and analytic & post analytic considerations.
