In association with YMC we now can offer a variety of training courses including the basics of preparative chromatography, method development in chiral chromatography, and the theory of glass column packing

Through a combination of theory and practical examples, gain all the knowledge you need to improve lab workflows.

Find more detail on these special courses below.

Introduction to Preparative Chromatography

Learn all the basics of preparative chromatography.

Contents and learning objectives

  • Differences between analytical and preparative chromatography
  • Important preparative process parameters
  • Outline of preparative method development

Who should attend this course?

All chromatography operators who are new to the field of preparative chromatography.


Element stocks a wide selection of analytical, biochromatography, and chiral columns from YMC to suit a range of separation needs.
If you have any questions about YMC products then our technical team is here to help.

Method Development in Chiral Chromatography

Learn how to develop a chiral chromatography method.

Contents and learning objectives

  • What you have to consider at the start of a project: target (e.g. quality control, purification), sample characteristics and system specifications.
  • How to find the optimum column by phase screening.
  • Through optimisation of resolution, run time and selectivity to the final method.

Who should attend this course?

Chromatography operators who are new to this field or who are already working with chiral separations.

Theory of Glass Column Packing

Learn all strategies tosuccessfully pack a glass column.

Contents and learning objectives

  • Packing procedures: flow packing, axial compression and pack-in-place
  • Column qualification: determination of HETP and asymmetry using pulse test and transition analysis
  • Troubleshooting

Who should attend this course?

Glass column users with alternative qualifications (laboratory assistants, technicians, engineers, chemists).
