AbstractAnalytical methods are the key for a comprehensive understanding of biological systems. This course introduces modern bioanalytical concepts and methods that are applied in the life sciences. Techniques for sample preparation, fluid handling, and detection, including microfluidics, microarray technology, immunological methods, sensors and biosensors, and various spectroscopic detection techniques
ObjectiveStudents will learn the basic principles, potential and limitations of analytical methods and lab-on-chip technology.
ContentAnalytical methods are the key for a comprehensive understanding of biological systems. This course introduces into modern bioanalytical concepts and methods that are applied in the life sciences. The lecture includes discussions of highly topical studies.

Topics will include:
Targets: Biomolecules, biomarkers, signalling factors – what and where to measure
Detection: Fluorescence spectroscopy, related techniques and label-free detection methods
Basic principles of microfluidics/lab-on-chip technology
Applied microfluidics: Single-cell analysis, medical applications and point-of-care diagnostic
Microarray technology
Immunological methods
Sensors and biosensors
