Code: 17AMBLT Clinical Laboratory Instrumentation
Lecturer: Ing. Lenka Strnadová Weekly load: 1+1 Assessment: Z,ZK
Department: 17110 Credits: 4 Semester: W
Description:
Clinical laboratory instrumentation introduces principles of bioanalytical methods used in clinical diagnostics. Emphasis is put on optical methods (UV-VIS spectrophotometry, IR spectroscopy, AAS, AES, fluorimetry), NMR and X-ray analysis, electrochemical and electromigration methods (ion electrodes, biosensors, electrophoresis, isoelectric focusing), imunoassays and genetic methods (ELISA, PCR) as well as on chromatography and mass spectrometry. Contribution of lab automation to clinical diagnostics will be also discussed.

During the laboratory course students will be introduced into the basics of work in bioanalytical laboratory and lab data processing.
