The purpose of this course is to provide advanced training in liquid chromatography techniques and demonstrate their application in practical industry and laboratory problems. The course covers: major components of a liquid chromatography; operating principles; calibration methods; preventative maintenance; troubleshooting methods; quantitative methods; set-up procedures; and failure modes for each, along with practical examples. Preventative maintenance is also covered with an emphasis on analysis and troubleshooting methods. The course also discusses other aspects such as optimization of mobile phase, flows and pressure with the necessary theoretical information in each part. The aim of this course is to enrich and advance the skills and knowledge of the participants and to teach them liquid chromatography operation and techniques.


  • To introduce participants to advanced liquid chromatography and how the individual elements interrelate.
  • To be able to competently use and develop methods on a liquid chromatograph to produce robust and valid analytical data.
  • To provide advance knowledge of HPLC operation and maintenance.
  • To provide knowledge of accessories and consumables required for HPLC operation.
  • To provide good laboratory practices for accurate and reliable analyses.
  • To familiarize participants with the techniques used in liquid chromatography analyses, qualitative and quantitative methods, cause and effect diagrams and standard calibration graph.

Who Should Attend?

The course is designed for chemists, lab technicians, chemical engineers, instrument engineers and lab supervisors/managers.
