This course reviews the role of sensors for solution of analytical problems. After a general introduction, there are discussed in details the principles of sensor technology, possibilities and limitations for application of various sensor in analysis of various samples especially biological origin. Special attention is given to new trends and innovations in the sensor analysis, future prospects for application of sensor for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes are evaluated.
Aim of the course -
Last update: VED402 (16.12.2013)

Students will be able to:

propose a highly sensitive and highly selective sensor for the detection of different kind of analytes in various environments, including biological samples

analyze the information obtained during the measurement with the individual chemical sensors

individually solve the problems during working of different kinds of chemical sensors
