• to distinguish and evaluate advantages, disadvantages and application possibilities of instrumental methods.


Upon successful completion of the study program students will be able to:
• to evaluate the methods necessary for testing the good of the medicinal product according to the physical and chemical properties of the substances;
• use refractometry, UV and IR spectrophotometry, gas (GH) and solution (HPLC) chromatography to verify the identity and quantity of the substances;
• use potentiometric titration for quantitative analysis of drug substances.


As a result of the study course students will be able to evaluate instrumental analysis methods and apply them in drug analysis. Students will be able to complete the study course survey, evaluating the existing course content and making suggestions for updating the course.
