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.
