The purpose of this course is to introduce or reinforce the basic laboratory skills that analysts utilise on a daily basis. It ensures that you are trained in basic laboratory operations such as weighing, pipetting, titration, volumetric work, moisture determination, pH determination, use of laboratory notebooks, etc. The custom design service can incorporate existing SOPs and protocols so that new staff are skilled in basic laboratory operations and are all following best practice. An additional benefit is the opportunity to review laboratory practices to ensure they are compliant with current regulatory guidelines and best practice.

This course is designed for new analytical staff, or can be tailored around specific procedures and instrumentation to provide an invaluable refresher for the experienced user. It is assumed that you are familiar with the safety and quality standards which you will be expected to adhere to in your daily work. Background knowledge of the different techniques and all the essentials of separation science, statistics, etc are fully covered in the course.


What you will learn:

  • introduction to working in the laboratory
  • labelling and housekeeping
  • use of balances
  • use of volumetric glassware
  • use of pipettes
  • preparation of buffers
