A LEVEL CHEMISTRY 🧪
🦠This was a practical last week where we were investigating the affect of different concentrations of drugs on the cardiovascular system in terms of things like blood pressure. We worked out potency, and we compared the affects with other drugs. We performed serial dilutions, used a spectrophotometer, plotted concentration calibration curves, and investigated the effects of the different concentrations on rat simulations.
🦠 It’s crazy how when you’re revising for an exam, whether it be A level or GCSE etc, you never think that all this theory is ever going to help you (that’s what I thought anyway). Especially the practical procedures, I always thought that there’s no way they’d use these techniques in the real world, but I was wrong!
🦠 It’s amazing to see that everything I worked for previously has paid off. I remember doing serial dilutions in chemistry, colourimetry in physics, and plotting concentration calibration curves in biology, and it didn’t really all make sense. But here I am putting all the techniques I learned together for this practical, and it actually relates to my career!!
THE HARD WORK PAYS OFF
