• interpret differentiated pathological health conditions and their impact on the parameters and data to be measured and analysed,
• analyse and classify the construction principles of vitro diagnostic methods and devices
• structure the typical development processes of in vitro diagnostics,
• analyse the strenghts, but also typical limitations and problems of in vitro diagnostics in given case studies
Basic knowledge of biology and biochemistry;

Learning and Teaching Methods
The contents of the lecture will be communicated by talks. In the exercise students are encouraged to a self-reliant examination of scientific literature and to an immersion into selected topics of the field. The appropriate teaching format is individual and group work, case studies and presentation.
Understanding Pathophysiology. S.E. Huether, K.L. McCance. Elsevier, 2016
Further reading material will be provided by moodle in advance.
Description of exams and course work
In the exercise the students prove their ability to analyse and discuss the scope, limitations and problems of diagnostic methods with reon the basis of selected case studies. The grading will be based on a presentation to such a case study or published work examined in homework.
The final grading is composed of the following elements:
80% written exam / 20% presentation
There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
