`Students apply the principles and laboratory procedures for the modern instrumental methods of chemical analysis routinely used in biotechnology: spectroscopic methods including visible, ultraviolet and infrared spectroscopy, chromatography (gas and high performance liquid chromatography), gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, electrochemistry and electrophoresis. Specific emphasis will be given to the correct operation and troubleshooting of all instruments used. A laboratory-based project will require the students to demonstrate teamwork, leadership and problem solving skills.
This course isn't currently offered through BCIT Part-time Studies. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be able to:
Outline the principle of operation of instruments being used for analysis in biotechnology.
Assess the advantages and the limitations of selected instruments used for analysis in biotechnology.
Apply the principles of analysis to instrumental analytical methodology through proper standard and sample preparation.
Perform analysis using the following instrumentation: visible, ultraviolet and infrared spectrometers, gas, liquid and ion chromatographs, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry.
Interpret data pertaining to instrumental analytical methods.
