The laboratory manuals are developed to the foreign students of medicine for practical laboratory exercise and verification of knowledge from medical biochemistry. Exercises are gathered into bigger groups by topics. Student can apply their manual skill in performing of the experiments, and also train their ability in evaluation of results and making of diagnoses.

Knowledge of the structure and function of chemical substances and compounds, as well as their interactions and factors which can influence these interactions are very important for study Medical Chemistry and Biochemistry. The supporting materials are repeating of high school chemistry and represent the summarization of knowledges from high school chemistry including obligatory part of inorganic chemistry, structure and properties of bioorganic compounds and characteristic chemical reactions. The materials starts with the basics of international nomenclature of inorganic compounds, continue with chapter about properties of acids and bases, pass through examples from chemical equilibrium and redox reactions. The bioorganic part comprise the most essential organic and bioorganic molecules and their reactions. All listed information can help the student to better prepare for exam from Medical Chemistry.
