Předmět je zaměřen na pochopení principů moderních operačních postupů analýzy pří stanovení stopového a ultrastopového množství analytů v matrici. Základem je získání přehledu o technikách přípravy vzorku pro danou oblast, řešení problematiky homogenity vzorku a interferenčních jevů. Studenti se seznámí s instrumentálními metodami a klasickými testy pro stopovou analýzu, a také se statistickými metodami hodnocení vhodnými pro ultrastopovou analýzu.
