    4. Pharmacokinetics now coupled with Pharmacogenomics
  • All chapters have been updated, for instance the color test chapter now includes the analysis of metals, while newer analytical techniques, such as liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) and atomic absorption spectrometry-inductively coupled- mass spectrometry (AAS-ICP-MS) are also covered.
