Graduate course: Biosensors

Biosensors are analytical tools for the analysis of bio-material samples to gain an understanding of their bio-composition, structure and function by converting a biological response into an electrical signal. The aim of the course is to give an introduction of the main technologies used in the field of biosensors, from a theoretical and experimental approach. The students will be capable of design a glucose sensor, as a model for electrochemical biosensor.

Schedule: 10/14/2014 to 11/03/2014.
                  90 hs (Theory + Practice).
Location: FACET – Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Tecnología – UNT (Av. Independencia 1800 – S. M. de Tucumán, Tucumán, Argentina).
Fees:  Graduate students: ARS$ 800.
           Proffesionals: ARS$ 920.
           Limited places.
