Laboratory Instruments: Basic Principles, Operation, Calibration, Maintenance, and troubleshooting
Course Description
The good and advance laboratory instrumentation can motivate dispirited teams of chemists and technicians to accomplish high quality work. It is very important for lab staff to learn how to create the success in their lab. This course designed to provide an theoretical and practical application of instrumental chemistry in the laboratory. It is designed also to understand concepts of principle of maintenance, repairs and calibration, how to develop technical, and methods in lab and how to evaluate the lab results.
