This textbook is designed to acquaint medical students with the biochemical tests which have a bearing on subsequent medical subjects and the clinical applications of biochemistry. A large number of qualitative and quantitative procedures are presented in a concise, understandable and logical manner. The more complex biochemical procedures are purposely omitted, and quantitative procedures are limited to one approved method.

The book is not intended for use by students specializing in biochemistry and would be unsuitable for such a purpose. There are few alterations and additions to this revision. The textual matter might well have included brief descriptions of some of the new instruments which have come into prominent use in analytic biochemistry.
