Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Bioanalytical methods as a tool for the study of chemical composition of living objects (mostly microorganisms), but also the use of microbiological and biochemical methods for the determination of chemical substances in the environment.
Course contents:
Isolation and analysis of biomacromolecules - application of optical, chromatographic, electromigration, immunochemical, and histochemical and radiometric methods for the genetic analysis of proteins, polysaccharides, nucleic acids, lipids, and their associates. Enzymatic method of analysis. Biosensors. Microorganisms as a tool for the detection of biological and analytical determination of components. The latest instrumental methods of analysis used in clinical biochemistry.
