SCI07016 2020 Biomedical Science Laboratory Skills 2
This module aims to provide students with the skills and techniques required to work in a regulated biomedical laboratory, building on past knowledge/skills developed in earlier modules, and underpinning further study and practice in biomedical sciences.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Carry out laboratory work in a professional manner and experimentally perform, communicate and interpret laboratory determinations of protein detection.
Demonstrate competency in lipid analyses and interpretation of data.
Demonstrate adeptness in chromatographic methods for protein purification.
Effectively discuss investigations in applied biomedical sciences.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
Teaching and learning will be achieved via laboratory based practical course work, self-directed reading of the subject matter, laboratory report writing, discussion, research assignment and assessment.
Module Assessment Strategies
Assessment will be achieved through laboratory practical participation, report writing, research assignment and quiz (multiple choice questions/short answer questions).
Repeat assessment will be achieved through laboratory practical participation, report writing, research assignment and quiz (multiple choice questions/short answer questions).
Chromatographic techniques: Ion Exchange chromatography (IEC) and Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) for proteins; Spectroscopy: Visible and UV determinations; Protein assays: Biuret protein assay and Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA); Ouchterlony immunodiffusion analysis; Estimation of lipid/fat content by the Gerber method and Mutation detection techniques
