Course objectives
At the end of the course, students will be able to:;
- understand major principle assuring quality of the analytical results both in chemistry and biology. ;
- discuss goals of GLP, fundamental terms and standards. ;
- describe, discuss and interpret organisation of laboratory and work conditions, laboratory accreditation and proficiency testing. ;
- conduct equipment validation, validation of analytical system. ;
- apply fundamentals of good sampling practice including techniques for homogeneous and nonhomogeneous objects, design and evaluation of sampling plan with emphasis on environmental sampling. ;
- understand needs of GLP application in practices (e.g. in biology such as safety assessment of chemicals for humans and the environment, microbiology and biochemistry, GMO etc.)
