Example Courses Available

Below is a selection of 'standard' in-house courses to provide an outline of the techniques and topics that can be covered - all training an be customised to meet your own requirements:

Advanced HPLC Method Development
Expert Instructor: John Dolan
If you've ever wished that HPLC method development were more logical and methodical, this is the course for you. This course is intended for chromatographers with 2-5 years of hands-on experience, and it sets out a systematic approach to developing robust HPLC methods quickly and efficiently.

HPLC and UHPLC Troubleshooting
Expert Instructor: John Dolan
This teaches you the ins and outs of solving problems that occur with your LC methods. You will learn how to qualify the performance of your HPLC using specific tests that also can be used for isolating existing problems. More importantly, you'll learn how to prevent many of these problems from happening in the first place.

Transferring HPLC & UHPLC Methods
Expert Instructor: John Dolan
This focuses on existing reversed-phase HPLC and UHPLC methods and how to convert them to a different equipment platform conditions. It includes discussion of how UHPLC can be a useful tool in the laboratory. An important aspect of the class is highlighting things that can potentially make use of UHPLC difficult – but can be overcome with a little care.

Validating HPLC Methods
Expert Instructor: John Dolan
This focuses on validating HPLC methods developed for the analysis of pharmaceutical drug substance (pure drugs), drug product (formulated drugs), impurities, and degradation products. Although the focus is on pharmaceuticals, the principles apply for most quantitative HPLC methods.

Advanced HPLC/UHPLC for Pharmaceutical Scientists - Fundamentals
Expert Instructor: Michael Dong
You will get a critical overview of the fundamentals of modern HPLC/UHPLC relevant in pharmaceutical analysis including modern concepts, advances in instruments, and latest column trends and selection guide.

Advanced HPLC/UHPLC for Pharmaceutical Scientists - Applications, UHPLC Benefits and Potential Issues
Expert Instructor: Michael Dong
You will get a critical overview of the applications of separation science from drug discovery, analytical develop to quality control including the best practice in small molecule drug development and the analysis of recombinant biologics. The attendee will also learn the benefits, best practices and potential issue of UHPLC in pharmaceutical analysis.

Advanced HPLC/UHPLC for Pharmaceutical Scientists - HPLC Method Development Made Easy
Expert Instructor: Michael Dong
You will get a critical overview of the traditional HPLC method development strategy supplemented by a quicker 3-pronged template approach for rapid method development including the use of generic methodologies for multiple new chemical entities.

Method Development & Optimization for LC-MS/MS
Expert Instructor: Frederick Klink
This is ideally suited to analytical chemists and laboratory managers in GLP/GMP regulated industries such as pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, biotechnology, cosmetics, and food who presently use LC/MS, may use LC/MS in the future, or who must understand and evaluate data from LC/MS analyses.

Peptide and Protein Characterization
Expert Instructor: Frederick Klink
This offers relevant, practical approaches that scientists can use immediately in the lab. All attendees will come away with a basic knowledge of state-of-the-art approaches to protein analysis by MS and will find the well-organized course manual a useful tool to have in the lab as well as an invaluable source of references.

Mass Spectral Interpretation
Expert Instructor: David Sparkman
The two-day training course on interpretation of mass spectra is designed to develop the fundamental skills necessary to understand fragmentation of ions formed by electron ionization (EI) in GC/MS or by one of the soft ionization techniques employed in LC/MS. Many of the examples are taken from EI mass spectrometry; however, the principles that are learned are applicable to any ionization technique.

GC/MS Fundamentals & Applications
Expert Instructor: Matthew Klee
This is designed for those who are using, or are planning to use, GC/MS systems on a regular basis. You will gain a practical understanding of the theory and practice of GC/MS. Although the primary focus will be on mass spectrometry and mass spectrometers, important aspects relating to sample introduction and gas chromatography will also covered.
