Course Summary:

Beginners HPLC - what you really need to know!

This course is divided into two separate one day sessions for ease of learning and for the implementation of the practical knowledge gained back at the attendee’s place of work.  It is not a prerequisite that the attendee should have any prior knowledge or practical experience of HPLC although a basic knowledge of HPLC would be useful.   The course is taught in an informal (only the equations that you really need to know will be discussed!), easy paced and practical way.  The goals of the course are to equip the attendee with the knowledge and skill base with which to perform HPLC analysis in a reproducible manner and hopefully “kick start” them into an enjoyable career in HPLC and to attend more advanced courses in the future.

Who Would Benefit from Attending this Course:

With chromatographic technology continuously advancing and laboratory practices evolving the Shimadzu Centre of Excellence training courses help share the latest developments and procedures in order to facilitate a productive laboratory.
