This module provides students with the opportunity to learn about the key analytical methodologies used in the analytical toxicology laboratory. From sample extraction, through to immunoassay screening and mass spectrometry confirmations.
Practicals and workshops provide ample opportunity for you to get hands-on with the equipment used including state-of-the-art mass spectrometers that are used by toxicology labs to undertake much of their casework and analysis. You will also be taught about interpreting the data including mass spectra.
We will provide you with the know-how to confidently use the instrumentation and an in depth understanding of the scientific principles underlying how the instruments function.
