HPLC Method Transfer
This training provides looks at the techniques employed in the troubleshooting of methods showing problems during method transfer.
Methods required for routine analysis often exhibit problems when transferred to other sites or stepped up to use in support of large sample numbers. Pinpointing the root cause of these problems is time-consuming and requires a lot of experience.
This training builds a foundation of understanding of the background to many of the common causes – mobile phase design, columns and differences in equipment design. It then takes that knowledge to build a troubleshooting process that can be applied to real-world troubleshooting.
