CHEM 245 - Biomedical Analytical Chemistry
Section: 100
Term: FA 2018
Subject: Chemistry (CHEM)
Department: LSA Chemistry
Requirements & Distribution:
Credit Exclusions:
No credit granted to those who have completed or are enrolled in CHEM 241.
Waitlist Capacity:
Advisory Prerequisites:
CHEM 130 or equivalent. CHEM 245 must be taken concurrently with the accompanying lecture/laboratory offerings, CHEM 246/247.
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

CHEM 245 will teach the principles of modern analytical chemistry through a clinical chemistry/biomedical measurement theme, which will be attractive to a large number of pre-health field students who are non-physical science majors.

Concepts to be covered will include basic analytical statistics, acid-base chemistry as related to blood chemistry, pH measurements, spectrophotometry (including enzymatic methods of analysis), ion-selective and other electrochemical methods used for clinical measurements, atomic spectroscopy for metal ion determinations in physiological samples, fluorescence/chemiluminescence and scattering methods, immuno- and DNA type binding assays, and a wide range of separation techniques (gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, etc.) that can be applied for clinical measurements.

Emphasis will be on providing examples of how each type of analytical technique is applied routinely for providing clinicians with the quantitative values for given species that can be diagnostically useful in medicine and related fields.

NOTE: CHEM 245 can only be taken in conjunction with CHEM 246 and CHEM 247; this is not a stand-alone course.

Course Requirements:

No data submitted

Intended Audience:

Students in bio-related concentrations who are thinking of being experimentalists. It also is intended for pre-health students who are looking for a lab/lecture combination to fill out their pre-professional chemistry requirements with directly relevant subject matter.
