Course objectives
The goal of the theoretical preparation part is to provide detailed information about methods that utilize the latest knowledge in the field with regard to the contemporary level of routine use of new procedures and technologies. The basics of indication and interpretation of laboratory procedures with regard to clinical units and diagnoses. In the practical preparation part, the goal is to gain practical skills on a level that will allow the graduates to easily be included in clinical laboratory work teams.; A student will be able to do the following upon completing the course: Perform and verify analytical methods and release biochemical findings; Determine the correctness of extra-laboratory preanalytical procedures; Evaluate the quality of an analytical sample; Use the laboratory information system; Know and adhere to the policies of correct laboratory work during the preanalytical, analytical and postanalytical process;
  • Practical skills; Reception and identification of biological material-paper and electronic order form, barcodes, barcode readers and printers; Laboratory information systems, on-line and off-line communication, pipeting list, printing output, supervise of results, monitoring of economy; Preparation of analytical sample, tubes, labeling, centrifugation, aliquoting, sorting; Automatic biochemistry analyzers, chemical parameters of methods, preparation of reagens, monitoring of analytical reactions, lag-phase, linearity, substrate consumption; Chemical and morfological urine investigation-manual and automatic; Measurement of serum/urine osmolality, electrolytes, glucose, urea – osmolality calculations; Measurement of acid-base parameters and blood gases (pH, pO2 , pCO2 ), impact of air bubbles on oxygen parameters; Protein electrophoresis on agarose gel, denzitometry, immunofixation; HPLC – sample preparation; Atomic absorptions spectrometry – determination of magnesium (phlame technik); copper determination (electrothermic atomization; graphite cuvette); Morphological investigation of cerebrospinal fluid – quantitative cytology (Fuchs-Rosenthal chamber), preparation of cytospine specimen; Biochemical investigation of cerebrospinal fluid, spectrophotometric curve; Internal and external quality assurane – Westgard rules; performance, assessment; Documents of good laboratory praxis and management quality according the ISO standards;
