Clinical Chemistry Lab at INES Ruheneri is intended to serve the practical educational needs of Biomedical Laboratory Sciences students from year (level) 1 through year (level) 3 of study.
Clinical chemistry lab is concerned with measurement of amounts of biologically important substances ‘analytes’ in body fluids ( urine, blood ,…)
Students in Level 1 come in lab for urinalysis in chemical pathology 1; students in level 2 come in lab for diagnosis of metabolic diseases such as blood glucose, liver disease, kidney diseases while students in level 3 come in lab for diagnosis of deficiency related diseases such as vitamins level testing
