Prior or Concurrently: CLT 216 Immunology
2 Laboratory Hours
Learning Outcomes of the Course:
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Describe the mechanisms and performance of basic serological techniques and immunological assays.
2. Select the appropriate testing methodologies for evaluation of infectious disease, autoimmunity, hypersensitivity, and immune function.
3. Evaluate the clinical significance of clinical serology testing, including infectious disease, autoimmunity, hypersensitivity, and immune function.
4. Perform serological assays with the use of a written procedure, describing the methodology of each, its application in the clinical laboratory, and the clinical significance of results.
5. Follow appropriate safety procedures for each procedure performed and identify appropriate quality control results for each assay.
