Bio-Analysis and Clinical Diagnostics


Course Objective

Giving a clear account on the instrumental bio-analytical techniques and
strategies in bio-analysis an clinical diagnostics.

Course Content

This basic course on bio-analytical and clinical chemistry is focusing
on decision trees (strategic decisions) that can be used during the
method development and optimization of analytical procedures to
determine both endogenous and exogenous compounds in complex biological
samples. Approaches and procedures with respect to sampling, sample
preparation, separation, spectroscopy, electrochemistry, as well as
immunological and enzymatic procedures will be dealt with. Case studies
will be used to clarify the decisions that have to be taken.

Teaching Methods

Lectures and tutorials.

Method of Assessment

Written examination.


Hand-outs ( electronically available).
