The Matter Factory: A History of the Chemistry Laboratory

The Matter Factory: A History of the Chemistry Laboratory Lowest new price: $26.55
Lowest used price: $24.78
List price: $45.00
Author: Peter J. T. Morris

White coats, Bunsen burners, beakers, flasks, and pipettes—the furnishings of the chemistry laboratory are familiar to most of us from our school days, but just how did these items come to be the crucial tools of science? Examining the history of the laboratory, Peter J. T. Morris offers a unique way to look at the history of chemistry itself, showing how the development of the laboratory helped shape modern chemistry.
           
Chemists, Morris shows, are one of the leading drivers of innovation in laboratory design and technology. He tells of fascinating lineages of invention and innovation, for instance, how the introduction of coal gas into Robert Wilhelm Bunsen’s laboratory led to the eponymous burner, which in turn led to the development of atomic spectroscopy. Comparing laboratories across eras, from the furnace-centered labs that survived until the late eighteenth century to the cleanrooms of today, he shows how the overlooked aspects of science—the architectural design and innovative tools that have facilitated its practice—have had a profound impact on what science has been able to do and, ultimately, what we have been able to understand.

Accurate Results in the Clinical Laboratory: A Guide to Error Detection and Correction

Accurate Results in the Clinical Laboratory: A Guide to Error Detection and Correction Lowest new price: $64.95
Lowest used price: $54.94
List price: $99.95
Brand: Brand: Elsevier

This practical, easy-to-use guide, named to Doody’s Core Titles 2013, addresses interference issues in all laboratory tests, including patient epigenetics, process of specimen collection, enzymes, biomarkers. Clinicians and laboratory scientists can therefore rely on one reference which speaks to both their needs of accurate specimen analysis and optimal patient care.

Erroneous hospital and pathology laboratory results can be confusing and problematic, especially in acute care situations. While some factors creating interference, can be identified in the laboratory, detecting many others is often dependent on clinical details unavailable to the laboratory scientists or pathologists. Therefore, clinicians must become proficient in identifying such erroneous reports, and working with pathologists and laboratory scientists so that they can understand the source of such interferences, correct the results, and then decide what course of action must be followed for proper patient management.

  • Named to Doody’s Core Titles 2013, a collection development tool for health sciences libraries of all sizes, by Doody Enterprises
  • Practical information for both clinicians and laboratory scientists, presented in the form of tables and charts for easy reference
  • Focus on range and sources of interferences rather than details of toxicologic mechanisms which are well covered in toxicology textbooks
  • Covers interferences across endocrine, oncology, hematology, immunohistochemistry, immunology, serology, microbiology, and molecular testing

The Chemist's Companion: A Handbook of Practical Data, Techniques, and References

The Chemist's Companion: A Handbook of Practical Data, Techniques, and References Lowest new price: $56.01
Lowest used price: $9.38
List price: $213.95
Author: Arnold J. Gordon

Here in one source is a wide variety of practical, everyday information often required by chemists but seldom found together, if at all, in the standard handbooks, data collections, manuals, and other usual sources. Discussing physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of substances and systems, the authors answer such questions as:

  • How do I test for and destroy peroxides in different solvents and what is the best way to purify such solvents?
  • What are the structure, physical properties, and recent references to the use of common-name solvents and solvent aids such as the "Skellysolves," "Cellosolves," "Crownanes," and "Glymes"?
  • What is the utility of a particular molecular sieve, or permeation gel, or epoxy cement, or liquid crystal, and where do I buy them and find references to their application?
The book is divided into nine chapters and covers properties of atoms and molecules, spectroscopy, photochemistry, chromatography, kinetics and thermodynamics, various experimental techniques, and mathematical and numerical information, including the definitions, values, and usage rules of the newly adopted International System of Units (SI Units). A section on statistical treatment of data which provides an actual least-squares computer program is also included. In the spectroscopy chapter, very extensive and up-to-date collections of spectral correlation data are presented for ir, uv-vis, optical rotation, nmr, and mass spectra, along with data on esr and nqr spectroscopy. Also included is a variety of hard-to-classify but frequently sought information, such as names and addresses of microanalysis companies and chemistry publishers, descriptions and commercial sources of atomic and molecular models, and safety data for hazardous chemicals. More than 500 key references are also included, most of which are recent. There are important hints and definitions associated with the art as well as the state of the art for the appropriate subjects. Also found throughout the book are about 250 suppliers and directions for obtaining special booklets or other material.

Containing a wealth of useful information, The Chemist's Companion will be an indispensable guide for students and professional chemists in nearly all the chemical disciplines. In addition, it will provide for the teacher and student an unusual adjunct for use in a broad cross-section of chemistry courses.

State-by-State Clinical Trial Requirements Reference Guide (Serio) Lowest new price: $99.95
Lowest used price: $99.94
List price: $99.95
Author: John C. Serio

Although many clinical trial sponsors and investigators focus primarily on FDA regulations related to the conduct and design of clinical trials, their failure to comply with state laws and regulations may expose sponsors, investigators, IRBs, Institutions, or individuals to significant liability risks and call into question the potential integrity of clinical data. Today s US-based clinical trials must meet not just federal requirements, but an increasingly complex array of state specific requirements as well. In fact, many areas critical and foundational to clinical studies age of consent, capacity to consent, notification of state agencies, experimental drug dispensing requirements, genetic testing, and legal representatives, among many others are driven by state, and not federal, laws. How do you monitor the requirements of all 50 states? State-by-State Clinical Trial Requirements Reference Guide 2012 provides totally updated and expanded profiles of the clinical trial standards in all 50 states. This newly updated resource breaks down each state s requirements in more than a dozen practical areas critical to your clinical research programs, including:
* State statutory structures for clinical trials
* Required notifications to state officials/offices
* Legal representative standards
* Age of consent/Capacity to consent
* Drug dispensing/administration requirements
* Informed consent, IRB, and clinical protocol requirements
* State licensing authorities (medical, nursing, pharmacy)
* Special state rules for cancer research
* State HIV testing rules
* State requirements for genetic testing
* State-specific benefits afforded clinical research
