P637: Striving for relevancy: Bioanalytical chemistry in instrumental and biochemistry laboratories

Kent Clinger (Lipscomb University, USA)

Most science students in liberal arts universities are seeking entrance into health-related professional schools (at least initially).   Lipscomb University is particularly blessed with large numbers of such students.   As opportunities in analytical chemistry have grown, engaging these pre-professional students in relevant laboratory activities has been a challenge.   A number of experiments have been developed in bioanalytical chemistry, both in Instrumental Analysis and the Biochemistry Laboratories.   Students have performed peptide mapping by HPLC, detected riboflavin by fluorescence, analyzed for amino acids by capillary electrophoresis, and titrated amino acids.   New bioanalytical experiments are being developed for LC-MS, cyclic voltammetry, and differential scanning calorimetry.   Bioanalytical chemistry has also become an area for exploration in undergraduate research.
