Laboratory of spectral methods

Researchers and students in this laboratory are focused on fundamental and applied research in atomic and molecular spectrometry. They mainly deal with biological and clinical samples.

Main fields of research interest:

- study of distribution of physiologically important and toxical metals in biological samples
- laser ablation analysis of geological samples
- trace elemntal analysis in clinical samples
- determination of total antioxidant activity in beverages
- determination of selected drugs and its metabolites in clinical samples by Raman spectrometry
- study of tissues by Raman microscopy
- study of foodstuff and food additives by vibrational spectrometry
