Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. By controlling information flow through biochemical signaling and the flow of chemical energy through metabolism, biochemical processes give rise to the complexity of life.

Ex Tax: £63.00
Normally, only small amounts of 5-HIAA are present in the urine. Large quantities are sometimes produced by carcinoid tumours. Carcinoid tumours are slow-growing masses that can form in the gastrointestinal tract, on the appendix and in the lungs......

It helps to nourish tissues; and carries hormones, vitamins, drugs, and ions like calcium throughout the body. Albumin is made in the liver so liver damage can reduce its level in the blood. The concentration of albumin also drops with a t...
Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)

Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)

High ALP levels can indicate that a person’s bile ducts are somehow partially or totally blocked or inflamed. Often, ALP is high in people who have cancer that has spread to the liver or the bones, and doctors can do further testing to see if this has happened. If a person with bone or liver cancer responds to treatment, ALP levels will d...
Alpha Feto Protein (AFP)

Alpha Feto Protein (AFP)

£43.00
Ex Tax: £43.00
AFP is a protein that is normally produced by the developing foetus. However, it can also be produced by certain tumours and disease of the liver. Raised levels of AFP are found in the majority of patients with a type of liver cancer called hepatocellular carcinoma and also in some patients with cancer of the testis......
ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase)

ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase)

£19.00
Ex Tax: £19.00
The ALT blood test detects liver damage. ALT results are usually measured alongside the results of other blood tests such as alkaline phosphatase (ALP), gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST), to help determine which type of liver disease is present......
