Practical LC-MS Method Development for Small Molecules
This one-day course is intended for analytical chemists, supervisors, lab managers, and researchers using LC-MS. It will benefit the scientists ranging from college graduates to professionals in the analytical field.
This course offers practical training for the practical scientists. It will take the participants step-by-step through the concepts and techniques to develop LC-MS methods. The emphasis is on practical issues associated with developing LC-MS method for small molecules. It also emphasizes problem-solving skills with examples encountered in the pharmaceutical industry and other fields. This course will provide the participants with an updated overview and a solid working knowledge of LC-MS. The participants will learn useful theoretical concepts, instrumental fundamentals and operating principles, column basics and selection guide, and key applications. After this course, the participants will be able to independently develop their LC-MS methods for small molecules. New technologies and techniques, such as monolithic chromatography and hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) will be presented. Since the pharmaceutical industry is regulated by GLP and GMP, some regulation and validation concepts will be introduced.
