LIVE Online Academy - 5 Sessions

Understand HPLC: from theory to troubleshooting, from method development to validation

Course Overview

HPLC is a potent analytical tool, allowing for the separation, identification and quantification of drug substances. It also presents many challenges, from the correct use of instrumentation, to analysing results, to the fulfilment of the regulatory requirements of method validation.

This course will offer delegates the opportunity to examine the core aspects of HPLC theory and method development, including troubleshooting. Delegates will also examine quantitation and method validation.

Live Online Academies

Gain real-time access to a subject matter expert delivering online training in a structured virtual classroom environment. Live online academies are virtual versions of some of our most popular face-to-face courses, delivered in bitesize sessions of 1.5-3 hours online.

Over 5 sessions students will learn through:

  • Live interactive bitesize sessions
