Annotation -
The course is focused on the chemical sensors (mainly optical and electrochemical) which are designed and used primarily for the determination of drugs. The goal is to provide a comprehensive information about the basic principles and characteristics of sensors, their design, preparation, construction and application in various fields with emphasis on the pharmaceutical industry. New trends in the development of sensors are also monitored.
