Planar Chromatography TLC/HPTLC Method Development

Dates: 16-18 May 2016
Cost: $1200/= per person for 3 days
Venue: Center of Analytical Sciences, 3 International Business Park, Nordic European Centre, #02-17, Singapore 609927

 Course Description

This 3-day course will be an interesting mix of theory and practical hands-on sessions. Participants will learn of specialty TLC/HPTLC plates, basic method development techniques and instrumental platforms for quantitative and screening work. There will be hands-on sessions on a few areas e.g. sample preparation, plate stationary phase and mobile phase selection. We will also discuss modern coupled techniques like HPTLC-MS.

The practical sessions will include:

  1. Sample preparation
  2. Stationary and mobile phase vs. sample types
  3. Optimization strategies
  4. Evaluation of chromatographic separation method

Participants will learn the basic principles listed above. They will gain practical knowledge on how to develop TLC/HPTLC methods for various types of samples. We will also demonstrate the use of HPTLC for biological applications.
