Application of screen-printed sensors for the determination of painkillers

Agnieszka Sasal, Katarzyna Tyszczuk-Rotko


This paper addresses the problem of the intensive development of the pharmaceutical industry and its consequences for the natural environment. The characteristics of the most commonly consumed pharmaceutical preparations and the ways of these substances penetrating into water ecosystems are presented. Attention was paid to the need to monitor environmental contamination and to search for new methods that would enable routine quality control of natural water samples. The application of modern, miniature screen-printed sensors for the determination of trace concentrations of selected active substances of pharmaceutical preparations are presented.
