4 - 6 November 2024

This course provides you with Capillary Electrophoresis (CE) fundamentals and operating modes, as well as practical tips to obtain fit-for-purpose methods. 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 CE methods.

See here for the 2024 brochure.

For whom

This course aims at scientists with some hands-on experience in CE and who want a better understanding of the CE techniques and are looking for practical tips for method development and validation, good working practices and troubleshooting.

Learning outcome

After this course, you will have a deeper understanding of the fundamentals and be able to couple method development and validation to the purpose of your analysis. You will be better able to develop robust, precise and sensitive methods and will have a better understanding about the critical parameters, AQbD and good working practice of CE. You will have a good understanding on the validation parameters from a CE point of view as well as from a patient safety perspective. You will be able to make a to-the-point validation protocol. Your gain in knowledge will reduce the amount of troubleshooting needed in daily practice, but if needed you will know what to do.
