Special Chemistry


The Special Chemistry Laboratory in the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology provides high complexity, non-automated, biochemical testing. In contrast to automated, general chemistry assays, special chemistry testing involves more complex procedures encompassing the pre-analytical, analytical, and post-analytical testing phases. Unusual samples and atypical processing procedures, complex and state-of-the-art analytical methods, multiplexed analyses, and tests requiring complex interpretation(s), are common in the Special Chemistry Laboratory. Testing includes protein electrophoresis and immunofixation, heavy metal analysis, biochemical genetics, infectious disease and autoimmune serology, sweat testing, intra-operative PTH, fetal defect marker testing, and immunosuppressive drug measurements. 

Routine Chemistry

This study examines the use and results of a multichannel chemistry test (SMAC) in asymptomatic patients attending a family practice center. Of 288 patients, 71 (25%) presenting for complete physical examinations had apparently “routine” or baseline SMACs. Forty-three (61%) had at least one abnormal value in their chemistry profiles. Most abnormal results appeared to be of little clinical significance, but few were repeated or otherwise evaluated. Screening or baseline chemistry testing is a common feature of general health evaluations, but the efficacy of such studies is not clear.
