Annotation -
Bioanalytical methods are applied to determination of analytes using specific interactions between molecules. Modern bioanalytical techniques provide high specificity of analysis (one of reagents is biopolymer and that is why we talk about biospecificity), but also high sensitivity and low detection limit. Part of lectures will cover enzymatic methods, proteomics, electromigration methods, genetic methods (particularly PCR), immunochemical and other biochemical and microbiological methods.

Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

Choose suitable analytical method with appropriate detection limit.

Apply the chosen method for samples of different origin.

Orientate themselves in specialized literature concerning biomolecules issue.

Obtain wide knowledge of bioanalytical methods spectra including possibility and limits of their application.
