Chemical Pathology

Chemical pathology as a sub-speciality within pathology extends across most medical specialities and involves the chemical analysis of bodily fluids (blood - whole blood, serum or plasma; urine; cerebrospinal fluid; and other fluids such as effusions, seminal fluid, sweat and amniotic fluid) to assist in the diagnosis of various disease processes. Laboratory medicine in general and Chemical Pathology in particular is therefore an essential tool to assist clinicians in the diagnosis of various disorders, as well as management and follow-up of patients.
