Learning outcomes

Knowledge

After completing the study course, students will be able to:
• evaluate the objects to be used in the toxicological analysis;
• present the theoretical basis of the methods used in the analysis;
• understand and interpret analytical methodologies available in the literature.

Skills

As a result of mastering the study course students:
• will be able to isolate different types (volatile, organic, non-volatile, metal-containing) toxicants from biological objects;
• will be able to use chromatographic, spectroscopic methods and chromogenic reactions in an experiment to detect the most well-known toxicants;
• will be able to apply toxicokinetics and toxicodynamics to the interpretation of the results of legality analyses.

Competence

As a result of the study course, students will be able to isolate the most well-known toxicants from biological objects, analyse and interpret the results.
