ABSTRACT: HPLC is the most common separation technique used in laboratories across the world. However, even experienced analysts that are familiar with HPLC concepts and principles can fall victim to chromatographic pitfalls that arise. This interactive webinar will highlight the basic theory behind chromatography and show examples of what to do when problems arise. Some common issues that will be discussed are misshapen peaks, unstable baselines, problems with reproducibility, and the observance of irregular back pressure. Come prepared to test your knowledge with questions along the way and see if you’ll earn the title of chromatography wizard!
