Course objectives
The goal of the theoretical preparation part is to provide a theoretical base of physical principles used in analytical and laboratory technology. To familiarize students in detail with the application of these physical principles in specific instruments including existing modifications in contemporary medical laboratory equipment. To observe variations and modifications of specific examples and determine their purpose, advantages and critical sections in seminars, demonstrations and practical exercises.; A student will be able to do the following upon completing the course: Operate instrumental and analytical laboratory equipment; Perform specified maintenance of laboratory instruments; Oversee the correct functioning of analyzers and recognize possible malfunctions;
Learning outcomes
The student will understand based on theoretical preparation part the physical principles used in analytical and laboratory technology, and apply them when working with specific instruments. The student will follow variations and modifications of specific instruments, and determine their purpose, advantages and critical problems. A student will be also able to do the following: Operate instrumental and analytical laboratory equipment including its prescribed maintenance; Oversee the correct functioning of analyzers and recognize possible malfunctions;
