Course objectives
Course is complementary to VLBC0421p a VLLC0421s. The aim of the course it to bring experience with solving practical problems in clinical biochemistry, to acquire practical laboratory skills and to learn students to use results of biochemical analysis for diagnostics.
Learning outcomes
The student will explain the ways of obtaining biological material for biochemical analysis and is familiar with the rules of manipulation. Describes the physiological values of the most important biochemical parameters. Interprets the results of biochemical analyzes, discusses the significance of the findings. Understands the principles of the most important biochemical-analytical methodologies. Is oriented in basic laboratory manipulations.
