HPLC/GPC training course ‘Get more out of your HPLC and/or GPC’

We cordially invite you to an exciting 3-day training course ‘Get more out of your HPLC and/or GPC’, on November 28-30, 2023 in Breukelen, NL.


The reason for organizing this event stems from a common observation in the field: often users are not fully aware of the extensive capabilities that HPLC and GPC/SEC offer for determining things like mole mass and size of components. Your HPLC or GPC/SEC system is often capable of providing more information than you may suspect.


During this training course you will have the opportunity, under the guidance of two renowned experts, namely Dr. Christian Dauwe of AppliChrom and Dr. Klaus-Dieter Bures of WGE Dr. Bures, to discover how to take advantage of the various aspects of these analytical techniques on the basis of a practical example with gummy bears, including packaging. This will cover the following possibilities:

  • Determining low molecular weight components using HPLC
  • Determining high molecular weight components via Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) and Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC).

We will teach you how to determine the identity, concentration, molar mass and molecular size of different components taking into account various factors such as the type of chromatography column, measurement conditions and detector type.

Using a practical example with gummy bears, including packaging, low and high molecular weight components are determined.tector.

In addition, we will update you on the latest developments in HPLC and GPC/SEC to keep you fully informed about the capabilities these analytical techniques have to offer.

We look forward to seeing you at this valuable training! Undoubtedly, it will help you take your knowledge and skills in HPLC and GPC/SEC to the next level. Register and discover the unprecedented capabilities of your analytical systems!
