A logical approach to HPLC Troubleshooting and Maintenance is fully explored within this one-day course. Commonly encountered problems and best practice are reviewed for all major system components including mobile phase, pump, injection system, column and detector.

Examination of separation chemistry, interrogation of poor peak shape and retention problems are a fundamentally important part of the course, leading to increased awareness of troubleshooting principles.

Practical exercises are fundamental to this course and familiar equipment will be used to carry out a wide range of laboratory-based tasks.

This course is for anyone wishing to have the most comprehensive grounding in instrumental analysis techniques or those wishing to increase their knowledge and practical ability with our advanced training programs.

Experience with working with HPLC equipment is advantageous but not essential.


What you will learn:
- instrument problems: identifying and defining the issues
- common maintenance schedule operations
- investigative operations
- hands on pump, auto sampler and detector maintenance procedures
- common calibration protocols
- putting it all together
