Training

Our training seminars offer excellence in the

  • Knowledge and professionalism of our training staff
  • Curriculum and quality of our course manuals
  • Post-training collaboration and back-up

All on-site training seminars will be customised to suit applications and user needs. We aim to ensure that all course attendees participate and advance their competence to the possible maximum.

Applications covered include:

  • Post-synthesis semi-preparative and large-scale purification
  • Compound library/High throughput Autopurification
  • Impurities and metabolite isolation
  • Natural products isolation
  • Chiral purifications
  • Macromolecule – protein, peptide and oligonucleotide purification

Chromatography techniques covered include (but not limited to) Liquid Chromatography (LC) techniques such as normal phase, reverse phase, affinity, size exclusion etc., Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC), Simulated Moving Bed Chromatography (SMBC) coupled to Ultra-Violet spectrophotometer (UV), Mass Spectrometer (MS) and Evaporative Light Scattering (ELSD) detectors.

Finally – all our training seminars (on-site and off-site) are broadly classified into Basic, Intermediate and Advanced courses.

Intermediate Course
Overview

Focus is on a specific chromatography technique e.g. HPLC, fraction collection modes and where applicable mass spectrometry (MS) training. Emphasis is on instrumentation (theory and practical) and troubleshooting tips. It would also include a review of concepts like Open Access purification, focussed gradients etc. The course is a mixture of seminar and practical sessions.

Who should attend?

Purification chemists and/or designated instrument administrators, who have recently acquired autopurification equipment and wish to maximise utility and functionality. Established users wanting refresher training will also benefit. Instrumentation would usually have multiple detectors e.g. mass-directed autopurification systems that also have UV and/or ELSD detectors.

Key Features

  1. Understand principle and procedures involved in using instrumentation
  2. Assessing instrument performance
  3. Identify ways to optimise use of instrumentation, workflow and procedures
  4. Basic system maintenance
