Laboratory Medicine (Pathology)

Biochemistry at Alder HeyClinical Biochemistry (also known as Clinical Chemistry or Chemical Pathology) is the study of the chemical and biochemical processes of the body in their relation to disease.

In the Clinical Biochemistry laboratory, scientists carry out a wide range of tests to find out more about your child’s condition, or to monitor their progress. These tests are based on levels of chemicals in the blood or urine, for example in Diabetes, which alters sugar levels in blood.
