The course is aimed at the knowledge expansion of the principles and applications of modern methods of sample preparation and instrumental methods in food analysis. The lectures are divided into two parts: 1 Technical: a) sampling and sample preparation, b) separation, spectrometric and electrochemical methods. 2 Application: characterization and analysis of selected food components.
