Wolf Rüdiger Külpmann (Editor)

ISBN: 978-3-527-31890-2 April 2009 Wiley-Blackwell 976 Pages


This first, complete reference on standardized methods for laboratory analysis is tailor-made for clinical toxicologists, containing all relevant data and protocols for routine and specialized laboratory analysis. All the procedures described conform to standards stipulated by the International Standards Organisation (ISO) and academic societies, such as the IUPAC and ICC.
Neatly divided into two volumes, the first deals with requirements for toxicological analyses, quality assessment, the evaluation of analytical results, forensic aspects, clinical chemistry and therapeutic drug monitoring, while Volume 2 contains detailed protocols for the analysis of toxicants.
A handy desktop reference for the practitioner.
