Workshop Overview

This comprehensive workshop delves into the intricate world of High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), a fundamental analytical technique employed across diverse industries including pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food, cannabis and environmental sciences. HPLC serves as a cornerstone for compound analysis due to its efficacy in separating organic compounds for property analysis.

Led by seasoned professionals, the workshop provide hands-on training in a GMP laboratory setting, equipping students with practical skills crucial for HPLC analysis. Whether in Quality Control (QC) or Research and Development (R&D) settings, HPLC plays a pivotal role in separating, identifying, purifying, and quantifying compounds. Notably, it is extensively utilized in pharmaceutical settings for quantifying active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) or label claims (LC).

Upon completion of the HPLC training certificate program at AAPS, graduates emerge with a profound understanding of HPLC methodology and its applications, positioning them for success in the dynamic landscape of pharmaceutical drug manufacturing and analysis.

Who Should Attend​

This workshop caters specifically to professionals deeply engaged in Quality Control (QC) and Laboratory operations within the pharmaceutical and allied industries. It is tailored for QC analysts, laboratory technicians, managers, and quality assurance personnel who play pivotal roles in ensuring product quality and adherence to regulatory standards.

For those involved in regulatory compliance, method validation, instrument calibration, and documentation within QC and laboratory settings, this workshop offers a comprehensive understanding of HPLC systems and methodologies. Whether you’re conducting analytical testing, overseeing laboratory processes, or managing quality control procedures, the insights gained from this workshop are invaluable.

By attending this workshop, participants deepen their expertise in HPLC methodology and regulatory compliance, empowering them to excel in their roles within Quality Control and Laboratory operations.
