Clinical Biochemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering the analytical and clinical investigation of laboratory tests in humans used for diagnosis, molecular biology and genetics, prognosis, treatment and therapy, and monitoring of disease ; the discipline of clinical biochemistry. It is the official journal of the Canadian Society of Clinical Chemists.[1]

Abstracting and indexing[edit]

The journal is abstracted and indexed in BIOSIS, Chemical Abstracts, Current Contents/Life Sciences, EMBASE, MEDLINE, and Scopus.

Baby Wash Products found to contain cannabinoid immunoassay[edit]

Researchers at the University of North Carolina published an article in Clinical Biochemistry [2] which found Baby wash products could cause false drug test results. Newborn drug screening has a significant implications in both the healthcare and legal domains, on occasion resulting in involvement by social services or false child abuse allegations. The accuracy of the screening results is therefore essential. This research highlights reasons why false positive cannabinoid (THC) screening results may have occurred. Researchers identified commonly used soap and wash products used for newborn and infant care as potential causes of false positive THC screening results.[3]
