ITP 2016: The 23rd International Symposium on Electro- and Liquid Phase-Separations Techniques
ITP is the most recognized international symposium series that addresses the latest issues important to discovery, development and production in all areas of electro- and liquid phase-separations techniques in multiple disciplines. The dynamic program in 2016 will again highlight a wide range of technologies that utilize electro- and liquid phase-separations, e.g., capillary and microchip electrophoresis, electrokinetic chromatography and electrochromatography, two-dimensional electrophoresis, HPLC, UHPLC, Micro- and Nanoscale HPLC.
The three-day program is structured with parallel sessions packed with excellent lecture presentations comprising plenary, keynote and contributed talks and prominently featured poster sessions. The technical sessions will include proteomics, glycomics, various “omics”, genetic analysis, DNA sequencing and separation, miniaturization and microfluidics, bioanalysis, biotechnology, (bio)pharmaceutical analysis, applications, multidimensional separation approaches, hyphenated techniques, mass spectrometry as technology and its use in various omics, novel instrumentation, sample treatment, and more.

CE method development, validation and troubleshooting
What will I get from this course? After this course you will have a good understanding on what happens inside a capillary during a CE separation. What you have learned will demystify the secrets of CE. With better understanding of the different CE modes, you will be better able to develop robust, precise and sensitive methods. You have acquired many tips on and understanding of instrumental parameters so that your next CE method development will be more successful. You will find that perplexing and frustrating issues you experienced have simple and logical solutions and you will have learned to prevent them. You will have a better understanding what the critical parameters are and to apply your knowledge of good working practices of CE. This will reduce the amount of trouble shooting needed in daily practice, but if needed, you will know how to make a troubleshooting plan, find the causes and take corrective and preventive actions.
Who should take this course? Analytical scientists and technicians who want a better understanding of the capillary electrophoresis (CE) techniques and practical tips for method development, validation, transfer and troubleshooting. This course is designed for scientists who use CE as a part of their regular jobs, but technicians with some CE experience will also find the course valuable. No previous CE training is assumed, however, much of the course will appeal to the experienced method developer who wants to stand on firm ground in the basics of CE.
What does it cover? This course provides you with Capillary Electrophoresis fundamentals and operating modes, as well as practical tips to obtain fit-for-purpose methods. Key operating parameters will be discussed from a good working practice perspective. The method validation focuses on the ICH Q2 guideline, with many real-life examples from the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. Troubleshooting combines fundamental understanding with pragmatic problem solving and prevention. Although the focus is on (bio)pharmaceuticals, the principles apply for most quantitative CE methods.
Course content: • The separation mechanism • Different modes of CE, including CZE, CGE and cIEF • CE method development • CE instrumental aspects and Good Working Practices • Quality by Design and Design of Experiments • Method validation purpose and phase-related approach • ICH Q2 guideline for analytical method validation • Troubleshooting strategy • Preventing the need for troubleshooting
