Lesson Code: PGL-500. Discusses Out of Specification (OOS) and Atypical results. It includes their possible causes, the investigation process and preventive measures.
Lesson Code: PVL-310. Method Validation in terms of analytical parameters. Parameters discussed include standards, LOD, LOQ, precision and accuracy.
Lesson Code: PPL-830. Describes the basic theory and practice of HPLC. Particular focus is given to reverse phase HPLC. The components of a HPLC are described in detail and significant consideration is given to the explanation of results and peak shape. Analytical considerations of special relevance to HPLC are also presented.
Lesson Code: PPL-831. Describes the troubleshooting of common HPLC equipment problems. Examples include leaks, column frit blockages, baseline noise and detector malfunctions. The Lesson also describes the approach to troubleshooting these commonly encountered problems, and will be an invaluable resource to anyone working with HPLC on a regular basis.
