Clinical chemistry is a subfield of medicine. It deals with the analysis of chemical parameters or chemical processes that occur in the course of physiological and biochemical processes in the body.

“Clinical chemical examinations are an indispensable part of medical practice. They are performed in connection with medical actions such as diagnosis, prognosis, therapy and course assessment in all cultural states. (…) The effectiveness of medical actions depends on the reliability of clinical-chemical examinations. (…) But is a reliable analytical result already sufficient basis for a medical action?”

(Source: Greiling, Helmut/Gressner, Axel M./Büttner, Johannes (eds.) (1987): Lehrbuch der klinischen Chemie und Pathobiochemie. Stuttgart New York: Schattauer, p. 3.)

Thus writes Professor Dr. Stamm, who also mentions the following as further factors influencing the clinical-chemical test results:

  • “Preparation of the patient (e.g., last food intake before a glucose determination)”
  • “Drugs and their metabolites”
  • “Changes in the test material during storage”.

Thus, the laboratory specialist must carefully assess the respective results within the framework of preanalytics in order to pass the results judged to be valid to the respective colleague, who assesses the results within the framework of the patient’s clinical questions. Here, the results are considered in the course and in comparison with normal and pathological results.

This results in “a clinical-chemical finding (…), which is fundamentally to be distinguished from an analytical result”.

This methodology can reflect on 5,000 years of development and has experienced another paradigm shift with the beginning of the 20th century: The focus has expanded from acute diagnostics (injuries, infection and disease diagnostics, etc.) to preventive care and prevention. In the 21st century, this is also reflected in health policy developments: on July 25, 2015, for example, the Prevention Act will come into force in Germany, the purpose of which is to strengthen health promotion and prevention.
